Maton Custom Shop Dreadnought - 16277


Maton Custom Shop Dreadnought - 16277

With a combined tenure of 28 years, Andy Allen was selected to master the custom shop launch 19 years ago. During this time he recently surpassed the benchmark of nearly 1400 guitars, individually hand-built (many from his own inspiration and design).

Looking for a one-of-kind full range dreadnought?  Equipped with arguably the best acoustic electronics in the world, the Maton AP5-Pro is available on all Maton Custom Shop models.

The AP5 Pro Pickup System includes a separate microphone and piezo pickup, both of which can be blended via their individual controls. The system is designed to capture the true, natural sound of the guitar utilizing the adjustable cardioid mic, which is mounted directly to the pre-amp, and the unique piezo system to permit easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artist's style.

All handcrafted Maton Custom Shop guitars include a USB drive with images of your guitar in production. Production photos courtesy of Andy Allen, All in a days work!
