Cole Clark

Handmade with pride in Australia.

Cole Clark guitars have a bold sense of self in terms of design and materials, and their guitars have a consistency of personality that is the hallmark of all great instrument makers.

The materials used in creating the Fat Lady II are sourced from abundant Australian tree stocks, and those groves are tended with care for replenishment. Cole Clark employs classical construction methodologies alongside innovative design and manufacturing techniques to produce a lighter, stronger guitar with a completely natural sounding pickup.

An Australian-grown American Redwood top and Australian Blackwood back and sides combine to create a broad, warm acoustic guitar sound that will charm any fan of quality guitar sound. The Queensland maple neck is sure and steady, comfortable to play. Please note that Queensland maple isn’t even related to American maples. This is an unusual wood that lends itself extremely well to guitar building, especially in neck construction. Note that the redwood top is more oriented toward a warm and engaging sound, which makes this guitar less appropriate to players who like to use the guitar’s top as a percussive accompaniment.

Its pickup system is truly spectacular, with six individual piezo sensors underneath the bridge saddles that provides excellent string separation and clear, round, warm respons across the spectrum. There is additionally a built-in condenser microphone that has no response below 2.4kHz, so as to avoid any possibility for that low, woofing feedback that condenser mic systems encounter in stage environments. You can dial in the amount of microphone response you want with a rotary knob, so as to fill in the sparkle and complexity of the upper-end harmonics. There is a three-band slider-style EQ as well as a “face sensor” knob that is built into the lower bout. It allows cutting and boosting of midrange frequency, and when used in conjunction with the EQ and the mic system, allows you to dial in just the nuance you’re after. Great for recording.
