Maton Performer Acoustic Guitar
Designed for the live stage, the Maton Performer is the perfect companion for the gigging musician. It is the same overall size as the 808 series guitars but with less depth to the body format. The thinner body leaves you closer to the microphone and nearer the action without having a large guitar to lean over, it is incredibly comfortable to hold and play for hours on end.
The Maton Performer features a Solid Bunya top, solid Queensland Maple back and sides. Bunya has an earthy, evocative tone, a change from conventional spruce- but with the volume, tone and beauty to stand up in its own right. Bunya is also a sustainable guitar making soundboard, reaching maturity in 80 years. Compare that to the 300 plus years it takes to grow Spruce. Combine this with the clarity and evenness of response of the Queensland Maple and you have a high spec performance guitar designed for the stage. Comfort and playability are the keys to this purpose built acoustic guitar series
The back, sides and top are finished in satin that has a base coat of polyester that is UV-cured and sanded level. The timber is protected with no restriction to the natural tonal resonance of the instrument.
An on-board AP5 pickup system delivers all the great plugged-in tone that Matons are famous. On board tonal controls allow further tonal refinement.

Yamaha FS TA Transacoustic Brown Sunburst Acoustic Electric Guitar
This guitar must be heard to be believed. Amazing!!
Playing the guitar in a rich, live room is one of the most awe-inspiring and engaging experiences imaginable. The Yamaha TransAcoustic guitar embodies this same incredible sound without any external amplification or effects.
There’s nothing so inspiring as playing guitar in a great sounding room – it makes you play better, longer and with more creativity. The Yamaha TransAcoustic guitar recreates that incredible experience without needing any external amplification or effects, just the guitar itself. It’s the most inspiring, engaging acoustic guitar you’ve ever played.
An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.
Three simple knobs let you adjust your amount of effects and the line out volume level. By keeping the controls small, it minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, reducing acoustic sound loss.
(A) Chorus Control
(B) Reverb Control (Room / Hall)
(C) TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control
* Pressing the TA Switch for more than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.
* When a cable is connected to the line out jack, the line out volume can be adjusted by rotating the (C) knob.
Martin based this acoustic model on Eric Clapton’s guitar of choice for his iconic MTV Unplugged performance. Constructed from Sitca spruce and East Indian rosewood, the visually stunning 000-28EC produces a well-balance tone. This model has the shorter scale length of the 000 model combined with the wider fingerstyle neck of the OM-style guitars.

COLLINGS C10 SMALL BODY NATURAL TOP
Based on guitars first introduced around the same time as the OM, the Collings C10 is a leaner alternative, with the narrow waist and small upper bout resulting in a precise, focused response. Of all our acoustic models, the C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded neck profile. The small oval neck heel is ideally suited to the optional cutaway, which allows unrestricted access to the upper frets. With its unique shape and asymmetrical headstock's lines echoed in the curvilinear pickguard, C10 models offer a welcome alternative for those who find that most small acoustic guitars look too much alike. This model comes with the classic Spruce/Rosewood timber combination, Pre-war scalloped bracing, high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, ebony fingerboard with ebony straight-style bridge and mother of pearl dot fingerboard inlays, and Nickel schaller mini-tuners with 1.14 ratio. This fine instrument comes with a Collings deluxe hardshell case by TKL.

All of our Cole Clarks have been PLEKed!
PLEK machines are built and sold by A+D Gitarrentechnologie of Berlin, Germany. The machines were developed by musician and guitar instructor Gerd Anke with his partner Michael Dubach, who called their company PLEKTRON when it was founded in 1990. The goal of the PLEK process they created is to guarantee the best possible string action for each instrument. Simply put, a guitar with optimized playability sounds better. The strings do not strike the frets during playing and any intonation problems that may occur due to too-low string action are eliminated. Similarly, action that’s too high is also a thing of the past with PLEKing.
The PLEKing process is done by CNC (computer numerical control) machines, which use microprocessors to perform their tasks. That doesn’t mean human craftspeople are excluded from this process. The PLEK machine is ultimately a tool to reduce variances between guitars, which allows Cole Clarks expert builders to do their jobs more efficiently.
Taylor K14CE-Builders Edition V-Class Acoustic Electric
This stunning Grand Auditorium from our new Builder’s Edition collection features Hawaiian koa back and sides paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top. The guitar was inspired by our groundbreaking V-Class bracing, which boosts the volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases the sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the guitar by creating a more orderly response from the soundboard. The result is a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords sing with cohesive beauty. Another design emphasis of Builder’s Edition is enhanced playing comfort in the form of ergonomic new body contours. Details include a beveled armrest, beveled body edge treatment, and a reshaped cutaway that flows smoothly into the heel and incorporates a finger bevel where the cutaway meets the soundboard. This creates a more fluid path to the guitar’s upper-register notes for your fretting hand. Other refined touches include “silent” satin finish, which helps quiet the incidental noise against the guitar body, and a gorgeous new Kona burst that highlights the natural beauty of the figured koa back and sides. Inset koa/paua top and back trim adds a beautiful sparkle that complements the new Spring Vine fretboard inlay. In every way, this K14ce acoustic guitar embodies the ultimate player’s guitar and testifies to the benefits of innovative craftsmanship.
Includes a Taylor Hard Case
