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 worlds 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 sound hole. You can isolate or blend each source together to deliver the ultimate gigging guitar. Includes a custom made flight case.
