Product Description

This guitar was shown at the NAMM, aka National Association of Music Merchants, Trade Show 2018 held in Anaheim, California; the second largest music products trade show in the world. For this reason it may have very minor surface scratches, though none of them are bad enough to be visible in the accompanying photos.

PLEASE NOTE: Rosewood has been being commercially harvested to the point of extinction, and it is now a highly protected endangered species. The UN Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) shocked the guitar industry in 2017 when they put a stop to the future manufacturing of guitars with Rosewood. Once current supplies run out it will be illegal to make guitars with Rosewood. In fact, a special CITES Export Permit is now required to even transport a guitar containing Rosewood across international borders. However, this does not affect most instruments when the owner is traveling with it.

This very special Merida 39" solid cedar and rosewood model MC-10-Sor Classical Guitar features a beautiful inlay on the back of famous Spanish guitarist Fernando Sor, considered in his day to be the best guitarist in the world.

 

Fernando Sor or Josep Ferran Sorts i Muntades (baptized 14 February 1778 – died 10 July 1839) was a Spanish classical guitarist and composer. While he is best known for his guitar compositions, he also composed music for a wide range of genres, including opera, orchestra, string quartet, piano, voice, and ballet. His ballet score Cendrillon (Cinderella) received over one hundred performances. Sor's works for guitar range from pieces for beginning players to advanced players such as Variations on a Theme of Mozart. Sor's contemporaries considered him to be the best guitarist in the world, and his works for guitar have been widely played and reprinted since his death. Although modern classical guitar players usually do, Sor rarely used his ring finger and refused the usage of nails when playing.

As Sor's works were published in various countries, his name was translated, leading to variations in the spelling. Variations have included Joseph Fernando Macari Sors, Fernando Sor, Ferran Sor, Ferdinand Sor, and Ferdinando Sor -Source: Wikipedia

 

The idea for Mérida Extrema came from the 2,000-year-old historical Roman village of Mérida in the area of Extremadura in Spain, just north of Andalusia, the birthplace of the guitar. The ancient arched Puente Romano Bridge became the inspiration for Mérida Extrema’s TwoWoodtone Bridge, the ultimate sound connection between the strings and the guitar’s solid top.

Mérida Guitars and the factory that bears it's name builds guitars for many of the most respected, established and well-known brands of guitars in the world.
