When you see Cole Clark on the headstock, you already know this guitar has been crafted in a single Australian factory using only the best Australian timbers, and is equipped with the world’s best acoustic pickup system.

Cole Clark Guitars represent the perfect mixture of old-world craftsmanship and modern precision, resulting in guitars that are equally rewarding to both the eyes and ears. Take a piece of Australia with you to every musical stage, knowing you’re going to #lovewhatyouhear.

Cole Clark steel string acoustic guitars are the only mainstream acoustic to use a Spanish heel or integral neck construction, the way Spanish guitars have been made for over 300 years. On a Spanish Heel, the neck is glued to the face along with the sides and the back so the neck is one piece all the way to the sound hole. On other guitars, the body is made then the neck attached, mostly with a bolt or dove tail join. Due to our method, the sound is unique.

Cole Clark also has a carved top and back, and uses a ridge system to join the sides to the top and back instead of kerfing.

The Cole Clark patented pickup system is the most acoustic sounding pickup available. Aimed at finding a more natural tone when amplified and eliminating piezo ‘quack’, our pickups comprise different elements that only hear certain frequencies which they’re best equipped to handle. This is done using a combination of 6 loaded piezos under the saddle for bottom end, a face sensor that can be blended in to hear frequencies in the mid to high range (350hz maximum crossover) and a condenser microphone shelved to hear only extreme highs.
