Pre Owned 2014 Maton EBG808TE Tommy Emmanuel Signature Sitka and Queensland Maple with AP5-Pro pickup ID-9386
Pre Owned 2014 Maton EBG808TE Tommy Emmanuel Signature Sitka and Queensland Maple with AP5-Pro pickup
Designed in conjunction with guitar great Tommy Emmanuel. The TE series guitars are an outstanding tribute to Tommy’s musicianship and Maton’s superior craftsmanship. Built to Tommy’s specifications the Tommy Emmanuel Signature series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing his name.
Tommy looks for a guitar with superb tone, capable of the most delicate expression as well as the most ferocious attack. The neck must stay true regardless of the rigors of international travel and the guitar needs to perform at its peak, from Rome, to Nashville, to Sydney!
The Tommy Emmanuel models feature a Mother of Pearl block inlay on the 12th Fret, engraved with "C.G.P." The acronym stands for "Certified Guitar Player," a title bestowed on Tommy by Chet Atkins and held by only 3 other guitarists in the world - John Knowles, Jerry Reed and Steve Warriner.
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 rainforest 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.
This guitar is equipped with the AP5 Pro pickup system. The AP5 Pro now features Separate microphone and piezo input controls allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through to the tone circuits and master volume. Highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments. This newly upgraded 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.
Tommy has done Australia proud and he continues to use Maton as his guitar of choice.
