Pre Owned 2013 Maton EBG808 Artist Sitka with Blackwood
The Maton EBG808 Artist is a guitar that packs a punch. Don’t be mistaken by its smaller body, the EBG808 has a mighty bass response with a focused projection. This guitar is well suited for both live performance as well as studio work. With a AAA Sitka Spruce top over a Blackwood back and sides, this guitar has been crafted to produce a very pleasing warm, rich tone. Along with being an excellent tone wood, Blackwood is strikingly beautiful.
In addition to having a beautiful acoustic voice, this Maton sound exceptional plugging it in. The AP5 Pro Pickup System includes a separate microphone and piezo pickup, both of which can be blended via their individual controls. The piezo pickup consists of 6 individual pickups, one under each string. The combination of the piezo and the microphone come together to produce an incredibly natural tone. The microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing via an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artists style.
The EBG808 Artist takes the popular EBG808 model and improves upon it with high end appointments. Along with an upgraded AAA Sitka Spruce top, the Artist features mother of pearl snowflake inlays, a Blackwood venner on the headstock, herringbone purfling, mapple binding, gold machine heads, and an upgraded pickup system. By taking an already steller model and improving it, Maton has been able to produce one incredible instrument.
This guitar is overall in excellent condition with only a very light transparent gray stain in the finish on the top. There are minor scratches on the pickguard that are to small to photograph. This Maton is a guitar built to impress.
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
