Silver (Silky) Oak isn’t actually an Oak, in facts it’s closer to the sycamore family. Don’t let the colour lure you into thinking this is a cold sounding guitar however as the AA Silky Oak has excellent bass/mid/treble balance and a very transparent midrange register.  The overall sound seems to have a less aggressive edge with a few more delicate nuances than normally used woods and suits the dreadnaught body perfectly.

The FL2 EC SSO features Cole Clarks PG3 pick up system which is new for 2020.

Different types of acoustic pick up systems have specific strengths and weaknesses, Cole Clark uses 3 different types and only relies on the strengths of each. The player can fine tune all of this from the simple to use control panel to suit the room they’re playing in. Additionally the FC button allows players to switch between the previous iteration of the system or to take advantage of the PG3’s upgrades. Using a Face Sensor for the mid range, an under bridge Piezo for the low end and an in body condenser microphone to capture the highs, therefore removing the familiar Piezo “zing” its possible to get the perfect tones on and off stage!
