Designed in Bristol, U.K, by Lindo Guitars – the Lindo Karma Fire explores the concept of the iconic endless knot (karmic knot). Found in different forms and throughout many cultures, it can be interpreted in different ways. The karmic knot can represent the eternal cycle of life and death. It can also represent the union of wisdom and method, and the affect of one’s actions deciding their fate in future existence.
With a slim body depth of 80 mm and a modern cutaway body shape, the Lindo Karma Fire offers the ultimate ergonomic guitar for player comfort. The ultra stylish quilted maple burst veneer works beautifully with the natural mahogany back and sides. The maple neck compliments the maple wood body binding. It provides a tone which is both warm and bright.
The Lindo Karma is equipped with smooth-action 1:19 ratio geared machine heads. These are finished in chrome. The high quality machine heads feel great to use. They ensure your guitar holds its tune well and prevent string slippage.
The BS5M preamplifier with piezo/mic blend system gives you the option to blend the sound from the under-saddle pickup with the sound from the microphone. The microphone is situated inside the guitar body and the piezo under the bridge saddle. This dual function is perfect for a slimmer body guitar with a cutaway. The internal microphone enhances all the low-end warmth, whilst you can retain the clarity of notes and introduce more treble with an increased mix of the piezo.
The preamp also has a 5-band EQ which means you have slider controls at your fingertips. Your EQ includes bass, low middle, high middle, treble and presence. There is a master volume to control the guitar?۪s overall output when connected to an amplifier or PA. The added notch filter control allows you to cut frequencies within a range of 100-500 Hz.
The phase button is exceptionally handy, as it can help to reduce feedback by synchronising the guitar’s sound wave with the amplifier’s sound wave. Often, the natural sound wave produced by the acoustic guitar can be out of phase with that of the amplifier. You will hear the difference because an ‘out of phase’ tone will sound tinny and unbalanced. Where as an ‘in phase’ tone will be fuller and warmer.
The tuner is chromatic and is displayed on a backlit LCD with LED illumination for all controls. So as well as being able to easily shape your sound, you can check the guitars tuning wherever you are and in any lighting conditions.
There is also the feature of the dual output using either a jack lead or balanced XLR. Plugging into an amplifier, mixing desk or an audio interface has never been easier. Ideal for gigs and high-quality home recording.
