Maton EBG808C Michael Fix
Michael and is designed to complement his playing style. The combination of a “AAA” Sitka Spruce soundboard, Ebony fingerboard, Ebony bridge and solid Queensland Maple back, sides and neck produces a tone that is rich, full, well balanced and with the glassy highs essential to the Maton EBG and Michael’s tone.
Originally used as a Mahogany "substitute", Queensland Maple has become the backbone of the Maton sound. It is used in nearly every Maton either as a neck, back & sides, or internal component.
A rainforest hardwood from Northern Queensland, this timber is light, strong, and visually striking. Queensland Maple is extremely well balanced with an even response across all frequencies. If you are looking for the secret to Maton's great tone, this is a good place to start.
The AP5 Pro Pickup System includes a separate microphone and piezo pickup, both of which can be blended via their individual controls. The 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.
