Maton 70th Anniversay DN C

Maton's senior luthiers have put their collective heads together to create a guitar worthy of this significant landmark. In a first for Maton this guitar features a gloss soundboard and satin back and sides. The tonal result of this combination is the full, natural tone associated with Maton's satin finish and a sophisticated top end usually associated with full gloss models like the Messiah.

The back, sides, and neck are made from select Victorian Blackwood with Rosewood binding while the bridge and fingerboard are Indian Rosewood.

The sound board is AAA Sitka Spruce. The series comes in two body styles, the Dreadnought Cutaway and the smaller EBG808 Cutaway. Both are fitted with gold Grover machine heads, tortoise shell pick guard and are fitted with the superb AP5-Pro pickup system. The bracing is fully scalloped and top and back are designed for maximum tonal performance.

The AP5 has been held in the highest regard for over a decade by players all over the world. It was with this in mind that we began development of its successor - The AP5-Pro.

The AP5-Pro now features 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. 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.

This is a really elegant guitar, full of guitar building sophistication and tradition. After all, it has been 70 years in the making.
