Maton Guitars EBG808C with Sunburst Sitka Top
This Maton Guitars EBG808C is stunning with it's Custom Tobacco Sunburst Top and killer Streaky Ebony Bridge. Built with a tonewood combination of Sitka Spruce and Victorian Blackwood, you'll be captured immediately by the sweet high end response and subtle overtones that come out of this 808 body size.
The 808 shape is a proprietary shape invented by Maton in the late 70's that caught on like wildfire and is their best selling body shape to this day. The 808 shape is the depth of a dreadnought, giving this smaller (almost OM size) guitar a much larger bass response. The most impressive feature of this 808C is it's versatility. Built with a cutaway for reaching those lead notes, this guitar is suited to play virtually any style of music and will excel every time.
Take your Maton straight to the stage with the proprietary 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 under saddle piezo that blend together to create an authentic (yet very customizable) acoustic guitar sound!
