Created as a tribute to the culmination of 70 successful years, Maton's new “Australian” series showcases the country's many indigenous timbers. With beautiful Blackwood back and sides from Otway Ranges to desert Acacia wood along the neck, it is hard to imagine guitars with more stunning appointments and features.
This EA80C features these woods, as well as Blackwood touches along the bindings and headstock overlay in a refreshingly natural look. Constructed in a traditional "dreadnought" size, the EA80C is a powerhouse in voice as well as beauty. With Bunya Pine along the top and braces, each strum produces a rich, well balanced sound ideal for bright, softer and harder playing styles. Bunya Pine carries a higher mid output than sitka. The fretboard and bridge feature desert Acacia wood, helping create a more complex voice. As well, the 80C includes a cutaway to better access those crisp treble notes on solos and harmonics above the 12th fret.
