Maton EA 808 Australian
The Maton EA808 is part of Maton's homage Australian series! This series of guitars are made out of ONLY Australian timbers! Bunya Pine accompanied Australian Blackwood back/sides give out a powerful tone with a punchy mid range and sweet high end! The fretboard and bridge are Desert Acacia wood, and the comfortable C shape neck is solid Blackwood! Top it off with wood bindings and a simple finish, and you get a guitar that is refreshingly natural. It is hard to imagine guitars with more stunning appointments and features in the Maton lineup!
Constructed in a Maton's unique 808 size, the EA808 is a powerhouse in voice as well as beauty. With Bunya Pine along the top and braces, each strum produces a rich, well balanced sound ideal for bright, softer and harder playing styles. Bunya Pine carries a higher mid output than sitka. The fretboard and bridge feature desert Acacia wood, helping create a more complex voice.
And if it couldn't get any better....this EA808 is equipped with the world famous AP5 Pro pickup system!
The AP5 Pro pickup system(arguably the best acoustic pickup system on the planet) now features a separate microphone and piezo input controls allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through to the tone circuits and master volume. The highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments. This newly upgraded microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing via an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artists style.
All controls are now at your fingertips, and their 'resistance curves' have been specially designed and manufactured expressly for the AP5-Pro. As a result, the Bass, Treble and MID are now much more 'linear' in feel. The FQ (Mid Sweep) now goes down much lower and has a much wider frequency band ( 600Hz to 2.4kHz ) to give greater control when targeting your specific sound.
