Maton Custom Shop Guitars TE Personal

It takes a great instrument to meet the needs of a great player! Tommy Emmanuel is one of the most well respected musicians on the planet for his percussive mix of fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing. His choice of guitar? A Maton Custom Shop Guitars TE Personal Cutaway.

Andy Allen of the Maton Custom Shop took time to consult with Tommy about what would become his signature instrument. After a few tweaks and changes, Andy Allen built the first TE Personal that became Tommy's primary road instrument. This Maton Custom Shop Guitars TE Personal Cutaway is an EXACT replica of the guitar that Tommy plays on tour. Built with a Sitka Spruce top and Queensland Maple back and sides, the TE Personal provides a powerful mid range thump and balanced frequencies on both ends of the spectrum.

The Tommy Emmanuel models feature a Mother of Pearl block inlay on the 12th Fret, engraved with "C.G.P." The acronym stands for "Certified Guitar Player," a title bestowed on Tommy by Chet Atkins.
