With Tommy's assistance Maton was able to develop their AP5 Pro Pickup system (featured in this guitar). The AP5 Pro is the best acoustic pickup system in the world and features a cardioid microphone (on an adjustable arm) combined with an undersaddle piezo that blend together to create an authentic (yet very customizable) acoustic guitar sound!
