Maton Guitars Natural Series M225 Dreadnought Pre-Owned - 16278

Like the Maton SRS-60C Solid Road Series, the Maton M225 Dreadnought was built as an entry level model that is easy on your wallet. What is lacks in appointments it makes up for with excellent string balance and powerful projection.

This gently used Pre-owned Maton M225 was built in 2011 and is well suited in a recording session. When you need clarity with a flat EQ, the M225 offers a dry and natural woody tonal character.

With little wear to speak of, this guitar was well on its way to becoming a closet queen. Comes with the original Maton hard shell case and Maton guitar strap.

There are minor pick marks on the plastic pick guard (unable to photograph), and there is a small wood chip in the bridge - only visible with the bridge pin removed (see photo). There is a small nick on the headstock and the back of the neck (see photos).

Originally used as a Mahogany "substitute", Queensland Maple has become the backbone of the Maton sound. It is used in nearly every Maton either as a neck, back & sides, or internal component.

A rain forest hardwood from Northern Queensland, this timber is light, strong, and visually striking. Queensland Maple is extremely well balanced with an even response across all frequencies. If you are looking for the secret to Maton's great tone, this is a good place to start. Combined with the Sitka Spruce top you have a powerful yet balanced full sized dreadnought.

A forward shifting of the X braces and the shifting of scallop peaks to nodal points around the soundboard help to enhance the vibration of the top. The shifting of the X braces also allows the inclusion of a second, parallel tone bar which allows the scalloping of both tone bars, and spreads the load while reducing mass.
Adjusted bracing heights as well as a locked15 foot radius for the arch of the back, gave Maton the plate resonance separation they look for between top and back.
