Since the introduction of our new instruments in 2010, we received a lot of enquiries if we are to offer a smaller-bodied guitar with Custom Series specifications. After careful consideration and prototyping, we are proud to introduce the new addition to our Custom Series, the Meridian.
Built with the constant traveller in mind, the Meridian scales things down without compromising tone and projection. Measuring only 14 1/2 inches in width, it carries Maestro signature sound in a small package; one that has rich overtones, striking projection and is very responsive.In order to gauge what the Meridian has to offer, we built the first one (Meridian-IR) with the popular combination of solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Indian Rosewood back and sides. Furnished with custom options such as Beveled Armrest, Soundport, & Florentine Cutaway, one can easily notice how special this guitar is.Even with its small body, players will be surprised with the richness of its bass, treble, and volume. Tonally different from 000, the Meridian can be dubbed as the perfect fingerpicking guitar.
