A fitting tribute for an iconic artist.The Maton EBG808TE is Tommy Emmanuel's "go-to" acoustic guitar that has toured the world with him countless times. Built in close consultation with Tommy Emmanuel, one of the world's greatest guitarists, the EBG808 TE is a high-performing, superb-sounding instrument with few rivals. The soundboard is specially voiced solid Sitka spruce with scalloped bracing for optimum tonal performance. Solid Queensland Maple back and sides deliver a rich and articulate tone that has punch and clarity whilst maintaining bell-like bottom end definition. This timber is light, strong, and visually striking. Queensland Maple is extremely well balanced with an even response across all frequencies. Aesthetic appointments include a traditional-style herringbone rosette and the now-iconic 12th fret C.G.P (Certified Guitar Player) inlay. The result is a guitar with superb clarity and punch that meets the demanding playing style that only Tommy Emmanuel can deliver.
Loaded with an AP5 Pro Pickup System that combines both a piezo transducer under the bridge alongside a condenser microphone located in the soundhole. You can isolate or blend each source together to deliver the ultimate gigging guitar. Includes a standard Maton hard case.
