Maton EBG808 Artist Series Sitka Spruce and Blackwood
Maton EBG808 Artist With Sitka and Blackwood
The combination of a “AAA” Sitka Spruce soundboard, Rosewood fingerboard, Rosewood bridge and Blackwood back, sides and neck produces a tone that is rich, full, well balanced and with the glassy highs essential to the tone of this fantastic guitar. This Maton EBG could be just the guitar your collection has been missing.
One of the most visually stunning furniture 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.
It is used in nearly every Maton either as a neck, back and sides, or internal component.
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.
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
