Maton EA 80C Australian Series with Sitka and Blackwood
The culmination of over 65 years of building guitars from Australian timber.The “Australian” series showcases the indigenous timber at its best. Beautiful Blackwood back and sides combined with a premium quality Queensland Maple neck to produce a rich, well balanced tone. This Maton EA could be just the guitar your collection has been missing.
This uniquely Australian guitar sits right up there with the best the world has to offer!
One of the most visually stunning timbers available, Blackwood has also become an important tonewood. Most of the Blackwood comes from the Otway Ranges in Victoria, Australia. It often displays "fiddleback" character and "AAA" grade Blackwood can be intensely figured.
It has a warm, full tone with a particularly pleasing mid frequency response and has become one of the most sought after timbers. It may be of interest to learn, that whenever a Maton employee gets to make their own guitar, they almost always choose Blackwood.
From our friends at Maton:
"From a small backyard workshop Maton Guitars has grown into a truly great Australian success story. Currently Maton employs more than 60 people and remains 100 per cent family owned and operated."
