Maton EBG808 Sitka Spruce and Blackwood Pre-Owned 2012 ID-11118


Maton EBG808 Artist With Sitka and Blackwood

The combination of a “AAA” Sitka Spruce soundboard, Ebony fingerboard, Ebony 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 what you've been looking for!

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 & sides, or internal component.

Using the ‘Sweepable Mid’ controls. Midrange is sweepable from 1 to 2khz and can be cut or boosted within this range. As a general rule for the system should start out ‘flat’ then be altered to achieve the tone desires. For example, an open, natural sound can be achieved by setting the frequency control at 1.4khz and the boost/cut control at 5db. Alternatively, for a ‘thick’ lead sound boost your mids by 5db and set the frequency dial at 1.7kh​

This instrument is in Excellent Condition with one thing to note. There is slight finish seperation at the seam on the lower bout. This is just a finish flaw and does not go through the top.

Includes Original Hardshell Case.
