The Cole Clark 'Angel' AN3EC Blackwood/Blackwood is a special small-body acoustic-electric guitar, known as the little King of the Hill. It is a rare model and features stunning figured Blackwood for the top and graded Blackwood for the back and sides. This guitar not only has a cool and stylized appearance but also delivers a rich and lush tone. It is a great instrument for live performances, equipped with a 3-way pickup system, and comes with a Cole Clark case for protection.

The AN3EC Blackwood/Blackwood is crafted with meticulous attention to detail. It is a grand auditorium-sized guitar with a cutaway design and internally carved top and back. The solid timber construction ensures superior tonal quality and resonance.

This model is equipped with the Cole Clark 3-way pickup system, offering versatile and dynamic amplified sound options. Whether you're playing in a studio or on stage, you'll have the flexibility to achieve your desired tone.

The guitar features a nitrocellulose finish in a natural satin sheen, allowing the wood to breathe and resonate freely. The neck is made of Queensland Maple, known for its stability and comfortable playing feel.

The AN3EC Blackwood/Blackwood stands out with its figured Blackwood top and graded Blackwood back and sides. This combination of tonewoods contributes to the guitar's distinctive tone, offering a balanced and resonant sound with a rich character.

In terms of aesthetics, the guitar showcases inlaid timber binding and purfling, adding a touch of elegance to its overall appearance. The bridge and fretboard are made of Ebony, known for its durability and smooth playing surface. Abalone inlays adorn the fretboard, waist, and rosette, enhancing the guitar's visual appeal.

The machine heads are Grover Gold, ensuring reliable and precise tuning. The Graph Tech Tusq nut and saddle contribute to enhanced sustain and tonal consistency.

The AN3EC Blackwood/Blackwood comes strung with Phosphor Bronze strings in a 12-53 gauge, providing a balanced and warm tone.

A pickguard is supplied in the case for optional installation, allowing you to protect the guitar's top from pick scratches.

With its exceptional craftsmanship, versatile electronics, and stunning tonewoods, the Cole Clark 'Angel' AN3EC Blackwood/Blackwood acoustic-electric guitar is a remarkable instrument for musicians who appreciate a small-bodied guitar with a unique visual appeal and rich, lush tone.

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.
