Maton EBG808 Artist Sitka with Blackwood ID-9144
Maton EBG808-Artist Sitka with Blackwood
We cannot overstate the power and punch of the Maton EBG808 series. Within the smaller shape lies a mighty bass response and a focused projection ideally suited for the recording studio.
First produced in 1978, the 808 series has stood the test of time and is now available in several different tone wood configurations.
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.
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.
