The auditorium body shaped used on the Marina MA-10SCE is an extremely popular shape in the Farida range, earning the “super-folk” nickname thanks to compact dimensions and tight, focused sound. The compact shape also gets the added bonus of a cutaway on this model, making the MA-10SCE even more versatile. The body is made using a solid spruce top and mahogany back & sides, a classic combination which you’ll see across the world of acoustic guitars. The body shape and woods combined make for an excellent, focused tone which is well balanced across the tonal spectrum. The characteristic sound of this guitar is a slightly enhanced lower mid range, adding some serious backbone to the sound of the Marina MA-10SCE.
One of the most impressive features of this guitar is the Fishman Presys electronics system. You get full control over the volume, bass, middle and treble using the discreet side-mounted control panel, giving you a lot of choice over your outputted sound. There’s also a phase switch and built-in tuner, making this system like a guitarist’s toolkit built in to your guitar.
Every last detail has been taken care of on the Marina MA-10SCE, right down to the D’addario brand strings used for the final set up. The finish is also a talking point, with this model having a satin finish. This means you don’t need a thick layer of gloss which can dampen the sound, but you still get a great looking guitar. The nut and saddle of the MA-10SCE are both made from PPS, an upgraded material with favourable tonal qualities and a traditional look. All in all, this is a great guitar with many uses across all genres.
