The combination of a “AA” Sitka Spruce soundboard, Streaky Ebony fingerboard/bridge and Blackwood back, sides and Select Queensland Maple neck produces a tone that is rich, full, well balanced and with the glassy highs essential to the tone of this fantastic guitar. Not only does this sound fantastic it is a great set of Blackwood too - check out the characteristic markings on it.
Blackwood, also known as Acacia Melanoxylon, most of which 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. What you really want to know is 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.
The AP5 Pro Pickup System includes a separate microphone and piezo pickup, both of which can be blended via their individual controls. The system is designed to capture the true sound of the instrument utilizing the adjustable cardioid mic, which is mounted directly to the pre-amp, and the unique piezo system to permit easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artist's style. Includes Original Hardshell Case.
