All of our Cole Clarks have been PLEKed!
PLEK machines are built and sold by A+D Gitarrentechnologie of Berlin, Germany. The machines were developed by musician and guitar instructor Gerd Anke with his partner Michael Dubach, who called their company PLEKTRON when it was founded in 1990. The goal of the PLEK process they created is to guarantee the best possible string action for each instrument. Simply put, a guitar with optimized playability sounds better. The strings do not strike the frets during playing and any intonation problems that may occur due to too-low string action are eliminated. Similarly, action that’s too high is also a thing of the past with PLEKing.
The PLEKing process is done by CNC (computer numerical control) machines, which use microprocessors to perform their tasks. That doesn’t mean human craftspeople are excluded from this process. The PLEK machine is ultimately a tool to reduce variances between guitars, which allows Cole Clarks expert builders to do their jobs more efficiently.
Maton Performer Acoustic Guitar
Designed for the live stage, the Maton Performer is the perfect companion for the gigging musician. It is the same overall size as the 808 series guitars but with less depth to the body format. The thinner body leaves you closer to the microphone and nearer the action without having a large guitar to lean over, it is incredibly comfortable to hold and play for hours on end.
The Maton Performer features a Solid Bunya top, solid Queensland Maple back and sides. Bunya has an earthy, evocative tone, a change from conventional spruce- but with the volume, tone and beauty to stand up in its own right. Bunya is also a sustainable guitar making soundboard, reaching maturity in 80 years. Compare that to the 300 plus years it takes to grow Spruce. Combine this with the clarity and evenness of response of the Queensland Maple and you have a high spec performance guitar designed for the stage. Comfort and playability are the keys to this purpose built acoustic guitar series
The back, sides and top are finished in satin that has a base coat of polyester that is UV-cured and sanded level. The timber is protected with no restriction to the natural tonal resonance of the instrument.
An on-board AP5 pickup system delivers all the great plugged-in tone that Matons are famous. On board tonal controls allow further tonal refinement.

Collings Waterloo Series WL-14 Mahogany X-Brace Acoustic Guitar
There’s nothing quite like the sound of an all mahogany guitar. With its warm yet crisp tone and even note articulation, mahogany has been a go-to tone wood for country, blues and folk guitarists throughout the last century.
The new WL-14 Mahogany harkens back to the “Dust Bowl” era of simple and affordable instruments that reflected the elemental need for music in tough and trying times. Often accompanied by only boot stomps, the instruments that inspired the WL-14 needed to be punchy and full, but compact and easy to travel with. The comfortable and lightweight WL-14 is designed with these qualities to be a musical companion in just about any circumstance, and brings the soulful and unadorned character of 1920s and 30s instruments forward to today’s musicians. Built by hand with love and care, each Waterloo is made of all solid tone woods one at a time in Austin, Texas.
Hardshell TKL case included.
