Maton Messiah EM100C Dreadnought Cutaway - Pre-Owned with upgraded AP5-PRO Electronics
The Maton EM 100C Slope Dreadnought was born from the blending of traditional materials with exquisite craftsmanship. The Messiah represents a total, no compromise approach.
With a familiar combination of Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood, this guitar sounds like a concert when you play it. Clear high range tones with very supportive low and mid range tones with balance across the registers.
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood considered standard of the modern era. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flat picking to finger-picking.
Our technician has completed a professional set up that meets original factory string height, making it a joy to play. It comes with a Maton Hiscox Travel Case.
This "one-owner" Messiah Dreadnought has been played and enjoyed by a Maton fan who has several. There is some wear on the first position frets (1 through 3) on the treble strings.
There are some flat-pick driven fine scratches on the pick guard, though none extend to the crisp, high-gloss finish. Several shallow dings to the body and back of neck, most not through the finish. See detail photos.
The on-board Maton electronics have been upgraded to the most current AP5-PRO system with 6 piezo bridge pickups and internal mic.
If you are looking for a Rosewood dreadnought to add to your collection, this one is priced right! A new EM100C is currently $3999.
