Cole Clark Guitars are built to exacting specifications in Australia and combine classical construction with innovative design, sustainably sourced woods and a natural sounding pickup. The newest model adds an intriguing feature- a genuine Lollar Humbucker electric pickup. The Humbucker is wired as a separate output, allowing players to easily switch between or blend the natural acoustic and electric sounds.
According to Cole Clark, the Humbucker models feature a patented 3-way acoustic pickup and all its usual settings. The added humbucker, with volume and tone knobs, are a completely separate output jack that runs ideally to an amplifier or amp simulator for a compromised electric guitar sound to blend with, loop or sit under your acoustic tone. Cole Clark also added a switch on the face to easily switch from acoustic, electric or both together.
The two outputs offer the absolute best of both worlds, where a single output will compromise both pickups and be limited in its ability.
In simple terms, Cole Clark says, an acoustic guitar should be played through a PA and an electric guitar should be played through an amp.
