Introduced in 2017, the Gold Series has been very well received in the marketplace and continues to show growth across the product line. The new Gold-OC6 was developed in order to meet the demand for a very high quality acoustic guitar from players who seek a smaller body size and nut width(43㎜ (1 11/16”)) along with a Fishman® Flex Blend built-in preamp.
The Gold-OC6 features a classic OM cutaway body style. This body style initially developed in the 1920’s captures the pre-war era tone that is often sought after. Sonically it delivers a sound that is larger than its compact size would hint at and with a level of dynamic responsiveness that is a joy to play.
A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments — until now. Using a special process that we call ATV (Aged To Vintage) we treat the solid sitka spruce top to give it that big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.
Bright yet natural with a strong and warm midrange, the beloved mahogany wood has been a standard for back and sides on premium acoustics for many decades. All-solid construction is featured on this model.
With a sophisticated modern design and innovative technical engineering, the Fishman Flex Blend System offers a wide range of sonic control along with a built-in tuner. Volume, Tone, Phase, Blend and Tuner functions are all available from three knobs and the tuner display. You can also adjust the Tone knob to best suit fingerpicking or strumming techniques without feedback issues and other sonic anomalies while delivering the most natural acoustic sound to your amplification system.
