Pre Owned Maton EBG808 2007 TE Tommy Emmanuel Signature Sitka and Queensland Maple with APMic pickup ID-9346
Pre Owned Maton EBG808 2007 TE Tommy Emmanuel Signature Sitka and Queensland Maple with APMic 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 TE series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing his name. This 2007 Pre Owned Maton EBG808 TE Tommy Emmanuel Signature Sitka and Queensland Maple with APMic pickup SKU-9346 is in excellent condition with a few dents and scratches which we have attempted to capture in the
detailed photos. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
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.
Tommy has done Australia proud and he continues to use Maton as his guitar of choice.
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.
Maton manufactures its own pickups, which we consider essential to maintaining the sound of both the instrument and its internal amplification system. After much research and development the Maton AP4 Pickup system was created.The innovation continued when Maton in conjunction with Guitar legend tommy Emmanuel developed the APMic system. The APMic utilises both the piezo based system and a microphone which is located in the body of the guitar to pick up on the natural acoustic qualities of the instrument.
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
