Pre-Owned 2020 Maton Guitars EBG808C JR Joe Robinson Signature Model - 14970


Maton Guitars EBG808C JR Signature

One the most inspiring players and singer/songwriters in the industry today, Australian native "Smokin" Joe Robinson has always been demanding of his instruments, and has been incredibly particular about the specifications. Tons of back and forth work with the specs has made this Maton Guitars EBG808C JR Signature model a true original Maton not like any other.

The JR Signature Model features a Tasmanian Myrtle back and sides with a spruce top, jumbo frets, an ultra-playable neck, and the lightest satin finish possible. The Tasmanian Myrtle back and sides give this Maton a powerful mid-range response with a speedy note attack and warm low end balance. The Mahogany neck makes for a sturdy ultra comfortable profile that helps hold and sustain notes longer with clarity and fullness. The jumbo stainless steel fretwire is something new for Maton players, "the frets are wider than a Martin fret and taller than a Gibson fret" - JR. Joe credits Joe Glaser in Nashville as the reason he changed out his frets for the jumbos.

Of course no Maton model is complete without their own AP5 Pro Pickup System. "I think the AP5 Pro Pickup System is the best I've ever heard" - JR. The AP5 Pro is the best acoustic pickup system in the world and features a cardioid microphone (on an adjustable arm) combined with an under-saddle piezo that blend together to create an authentic (yet very customizable) acoustic guitar sound!

This guitar is ever so slightly pre-owned but in like new condition. The original owner never even took the plastic off the pickguard.
