A classic for the contemporary player. The Cole Clark Fat Lady 1 is a bombastic dreadnought electro acoustic guitar built using Australian tonewoods and modern construction techniques. It also features an exceptional pickup system that captures the real tone of the guitar - wherever you go!
Sustainable Australian Tonewoods
Cole Clark take great pride in their instruments, which are crafted predominantly from sustainable tonewoods indigenous to their native Australia. The Fat Lady features a body made from a Solid Bunya top – similar to the lively Spruce – and bright-sounding Maple back/sides.
A Queensland Maple neck accentuates the highs and is adorned with a stunning Oak fingerboard cut to a 12" radius. The end result is a tone of dynamic complexity with vintage vibes.
Unique Neck Construction
The Little Lady’s neck is joined to the body via Cole Clark's 'Integral Neck Construction'. This means the neck is glued to the body face and back/side woods; essentially one piece of wood connects all the way to the soundhole, creating a unique projection. The Spanish neck joint also hearkens back to a time-trusted design used on guitars for over 300 years.
Fat Lady Series Body Shape
The Cole Clark Fat Lady series encompasses a range of versatile Dreadnought-style acoustic guitars. Adhering to an iconic and popular body shape, these instruments project loudly and have a punchy mid-range character; making them a great choice for singer-songwriter strummers.
These instruments also follow Cole Clark's ingenious, internally-carved body top and back design. With the wood at the lower bout section cut slightly thinner, this allows the soundboard to vibrate more freely for better natural volume. But if you're concerned about this design affecting the guitar's strength; you needn't worry! With channelled bracing (another feature unique to Cole Clark), this gives extra stability to the body.
Analogue 3-Way Pickup System
At the heart of all Cole Clark electro-acoustic guitars is a highly-innovative pickup system, which is regarded by many experts as the most natural-sounding currently available. Using a combination of six under-saddle piezos, a body face sensor and a built-in condenser microphone; the elements from this system capture only the frequencies that they're best equipped to handle. This culminates in an authentic acoustic tone when amplified through a PA system.
An effective 3-band EQ section gives Cole Clark's system even more flexibility, and you can even blend the outputs of the piezo and sensor pickups to find the perfect sonic balance.
Cole Clark guitars come equipped with reliable Grover tuners that provide a smooth turning action for precise string pitching. Graph Tech TUSQ nuts deal efficient string vibration transference to the body, and also prevent strings from snagging for rock-solid tuning stability.
