Versatile and Modern

With a tighter waist (the middle of the body of the guitar, between the lower and upper bout), the Angel allows you to wrap around the guitar more comfortably. It also feels slightly more nimble and comfortable than a larger-bodied guitar.

However, the reduced waist size doesn’t make the Angel sound small. Rather, it sounds balanced across all frequencies and is appropriate for all styles of players. Whether you’re a fingerstyle virtuoso or a “crash n’ bash” strummer, the Angel will sound heavenly.

The Angel (like the Fat Lady) is available in three different series: 1, 2 and 3, each with a higher degree of visual flair. Note that the build quality and construction methods for all Cole Clark guitars are the same, so you will always get a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, Tusq nut for top-end clarity and note definition, high-quality Grover tuning machines and our best sounding 3-way onboard electronics. No matter what, you will get the full Cole Clark experience, but some players prefer more exclusive timbers, decorative inlays and other upgrades that make the guitar more personal. See below for the series upgrades, and find which one best suits you.

This is the foundation of Cole Clark Guitars. The 1 Series is available with a Bunya top and Queensland Maple back and sides, which in combination are both loud and articulate. The inlays on the neck are mother of pearl dots and the guitar ships with a Cole Clark gig bag for ease of travel.

This is a great guitar and makes a great first foray into the Cole Clark brand experience, or as a more straightforward second guitar or backup.

2-Series Cole Clark models are available with your choice of a Bunya, Australian Blackwood or California Redwood top. While these each have their own unique characteristics, it may help to relate them to Spruce, Koa and Cedar, respectively. Bunya will be strong, bright and loud. Blackwood will take a little longer to open up (opening up means that it will become warmer and louder with more pleasing overtones the more the instrument is played. For the most part, all solid wood acoustic guitars will enjoy this process). However, as it opens up, you will hear an increase in the low mids and low end. Blackwood is sonically balanced and visually stunning, with rich striations and bands of color in the wood grain. California Redwood is a softer wood, which will naturally subdue the top end and make the guitar overall warmer sounding. It has got a natural bit of compression which gives the guitar some natural bloom and blossom.

All 2-Series Cole Clark models feature Australian Blackwood for the back and sides, which gives the guitar sonic balance across all frequencies, especially when plugged in and amplified.

For your 2-Series guitar neck, you have the choice of Mother of Pearl or Abalone for the “snowflake” inlays, and you can choose between chrome or gold Grover tuners for the headstock, which look great on a headstock facia of complimentary timber.

2-Series Cole Clark guitars also include a Cole Clark hardshell case for added protection when you need it.

3-Series guitars are the top of the line Cole Clark experience and deliver an instrument that is rewarding both sonically and visually. We pull out all the stops with these guitars, and whether on stage or sitting in a glass case in your home, you’ll be the envy of your friends and bandmates.

You get the choice between select pieces of Australian Blackwood, California Redwood or Cedar of Lebanon for the top timber. Blackwood will take a little longer to open up (opening up means that it will become warmer and louder with more pleasing overtones the more the instrument is played. For the most part, all solid wood acoustic guitars will enjoy this process). However, as it opens up, you will hear an increase in the low mids and low end. Blackwood is sonically balanced and visually stunning, with rich striations and bands of color in the wood grain. California Redwood is a softer wood, which will naturally subdue the top end and make the guitar overall warmer sounding. It has got a bit of compression which gives the guitar some natural bloom and blossom. Cedar of Lebanon is true Cedar, native to Lebanon and has historical significance dating back to Biblical times. It is beautiful to look at and has an evenness across all frequencies that makes it appropriate for just about any player or any style of music. Note: our supply of Cedar of Lebanon is 100-150 years old and takes a very long time to process, so it’s not always available to order.

All 3-Series Cole Clark guitars feature select Australian Blackwood back and sides.

The guitar is also adorned with Abalone soundboard inlays at the hips (the pinched in area between the upper and lower bout) of the top of the guitar. Those Abalone inlays are complimented by Abalone Shield fretboard inlays on an all-bound Ebony fretboard, as the fretboard on the 1 and 2 Series comes standard with River She Oak. The wonderful presentation of the neck culminates in a headstock facia in complimentary timber with Gold Imperial Grover tuners, for end-to-end stunning visuals.

Your 3-Series guitar includes a high quality Cole Clark hardshell case for extra protection.
