With a sound-board of "AA" grade solid Sitka spruce, "A-Grade" solid Queensland Maple back and sides and one of the world's finest acoustic pickups in the AP5-PRO. With its dominant live tone, The EBG808 is the guitar of choice for many professional musicians around the world.

The combination of a “AA” Sitka Spruce soundboard, Rosewood fingerboard/bridge and Queensland Maple 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 808 could be just the guitar your collection has been missing.

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. It is used in nearly every Maton either as a neck, back & 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.
