Maton EA 80C Australian Series with Sitka and Blackwood
Created as a tribute to the culmination of 70 successful years, Maton's new “Australian” series showcases the country's many indigenous timbers. With beautiful Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides from Otway Ranges to Queensland Maple along the neck, it is hard to imagine guitars with more stunning appointments and features. Our Maton EA 80C features these woods, as well as Blackwood touches along the bindings and headstock overlay in a refreshingly natural look.
Constructed in a traditional "dreadnought" size, the EA 80C is a powerhouse in voice as well as beauty. With Sitka Spruce along the top and braces, each strum produces a rich, well balanced sound ideal for softer and harder playing styles. The fretboard and bridge feature Indian Rosewood, helping create a more complex voice. As well, the 80C includes a cutaway to better access those crisp treble notes on solos and harmonics above the 12th fret. Listen to our recording of Dan Bankhurst playing fingerstyle and flatpicking in the MP3 above and tell us what you think!
This guitar also includes the updated AP5 Pro pickup. With features like the adjustable body microphone and Maton signature piezo, the AP5 Pro allows the user to control the individual volume of which sound they prefer. Known for producing one of the most natural sounds plugged in, we enjoy listening to these guitars paired with our AER amplifiers. Still not convinced this is the right guitar for you?

This new Maton EA 80C plays like a dream and includes a Maton-molded Hiscox Hardshell Case. To see more, take a look at our photo gallery.
