Redwood is an extremely high quality guitar wood which you could characterize the tone of as being crisper than cedar while retaining all the rich, complex overtones of cedar has to offer. The Cole Clark FL3 EC RDBL AE also features all solid Australian Blackwood back and sides, grand auditorium body shape, She Oak fingerboard and then we have Cole Clark’s new PG3 pick up system. 

This Dreadnaught sized beauty matches Cole Clark’s 3 series styling with stylised abalone inlays throughout the entire guitar including the sound hole and fret markers. It has to be said that this guitar simply looks amazing and could be one of the nicest we’ve ever seen!

The approach is quite simple, 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.
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”.
The player can fine tune all of this from the simple to use control panel to suit the room they’re playing in.
