The Maton Custom Shop Classic is Andy Allen's Custom Shop take on an acoustic guitar standard. The 000 or OM (Orchestra Model) body shape has been an icon for all acoustic guitar makers for decades now. Utilising the timbers that are most recognised in the style, he developed the CS Classic with a mix of AAA Grade European Spruce for the soundboard and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. After extensive testing tonally and geometrically, Andy settled upon a forward shifted X brace pattern to bring the rich bottom end from the guitar whilst maintaining an earthy midrange and the classic Maton glassy highs. It is not only the balance of tonality that he is proud of, but the projection, clarity, and volume that this shape captures so well. Truly a classic shape.
"It is not just the comfort of this shape for hours of practice and performance, but the ability to pick, strum and play fingerstyle on this shape means it becomes part of who you are as a musician". - Andy Allen, Maton Custom Shop
