This guitar is immaculate and the quality of these Korean reissues is better than the original models in my opinion. Easy install: Mounts to soundhole, Velcro attaches battery bag attaches inside your guitar, easy mount end-pin jack.
There are 12 outlets total: 2 x 18-volt DC, 4 x 9-volt DC, 4 switchable 9-volt DC/12-volt DC, 1 variable 4-volt DC to 9-volt DC, and 1 x 9-volt AC. They're extremely comfortable to play but, most importantly, the design appeals to players who don't necessarily want a tremolo.
Outlets three through six are switchable between 9-volt and 12-volt operation (toggle switches on bottom let you set up any combination of power values) and theres also a variable output (4 volts to 9 volts) for extra tonal control over certain pedals. Just as important is the thick maple cap on this model which, at .63", is thicker than either a Les Paul or PRS maple top.
It offers a broader frequency range than a piezo pickup while delivering authentic acoustic tone with enough volume to play alongside a large band.
The ACS employs a unique internal preamp that's been tailored for the phase and frequency response of an acoustic guitar while still retaining a brilliant top-end favored in acoustic guitar tone. Apogee ONE Audio Interface for i-Phone i-Pad MAC, (detail).
The tone is nearly indistinguishable from a mahogany or rosewood body.
Similarly, the projection is excellent and even with the smaller auditorium body style it sounds very big and is quite loud.
You may have noticed that Martin action has come down over the past few decades and this guitar is no exception. This model has the looks of a '59 DC (in fact theyve renamed it the 59-12 on recent models) a reissue of the model made famous by Jimmy Page in countless stage appearances and in "The Song Remains The Same" movie.
Action is low and comfortable, although it can easily be raised if you do very hard strumming. Highly recommended for players looking for a lightweight guitar.
: If you're not familiar with my site, it's simple, and you'll love it or hate it: (1) This page has gear that has recently arrived; (2) Links at the bottom of this page take you to most of our gear, logically arranged by manufacturer or type, e.g. (3) Lastly, my contains a lot of gear that hasn't made it back to the proper pages yet and is sort of in limbo until I move it.
It's not a fancy site but it remains unchanged since '98 so I figure, "if it ain't broke - don't fix it." All guitars and other gear have pictures.
Its very comfortable to play with the scaled down 000-size body, while featuring a full-scale 25.4. Add a new high quality Gibson Blues King gigbag for (pic). These Dano 12's are great values for an electric 12 string.
