Maton Custom Shop TE Personal Jumbo - 14224
Maton Custom Shop T.E Personal Jumbo
It takes a great guitar to meet the demands of such a great player. Designed in conjunction with guitar great Tommy Emmanuel, the TE series guitars are an outstanding tribute to Tommy's musicianship and Maton's superior craftsmanship. Built to Tommy's specifications, the TE series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing the name.
Tommy looks for a guitar with superb tone, capable of the most delicate expression as well as the most ferocious attack. The neck must stay true regardless of the rigors of international travel and the guitar needs to perform at its peak, from Rome, to Nashville, to Sydney!
This is the real guitar used by Tommy Emmanuel. Produced by Maton Custom Shop with the same specs, materials and techniques of the original used by Tommy Emmanuel.
The tone is so much warmer and defined compared to the already amazing EBG808TE, and it really seems to play like Tommy himself when you play this amazing guitar.
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.
All handcrafted Maton Custom Shop guitars include a USB drive with images of your guitar in production. Photos courtesy of Andy Allen, all in a days work.
