Maton Guitars EBG808 TE Signature

Have you ever wondered why Tommy Emmanuel sounds so good? The secret is 50+ years of practicing AND this guitar! The Maton Guitars EBG808 TE Signature is a culmination of Maton Ingenuity and Tommy Emmanuel's constant input to create the best Maton model that they've ever made.

The Maton Guitars EBG808 TE Signature is built with a tonewood combination of Sitka Spruce and Queensland Maple. The Sitka/Queensland combination is very balanced thumpy(thumbpicker) midrange with crystal clear highs & defined lows. The 808 body size gives a pronounced low end (despite the smaller size) while also being more comfortable to play. The comfortable C shape Maton neck profile is easy on the hand & the 1.736 nut width provides a happy medium(versatility) for players who want a guitar in between 1 11/16" and 1 3/4".

Not only is this guitar an absolute joy to play acoustically, it also shines with the onboard AP5 Pro Pickup System. 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 (and very customizable) acoustic guitar sound!
