Maton Messiah EM100C Dreadnought Cutaway - 16129


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.
