Customer Reviews

Based on 9 reviews Write a review

The Maton EBG808TE Tommy Emmanuel Acoustic Guitar is a high-quality instrument built in consultation with the renowned guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. This guitar features a soundboard made of solid spruce with scalloped bracing for optimum tonal performance. The back and sides are made of solid Queensland Maple, which delivers a rich and articulate tone with punch and clarity. The guitar also has a traditional-style herringbone rosette and the iconic 12th fret C.G.P inlay. It comes loaded with an AP5 Pro Pickup System that combines both a piezo transducer under the bridge and a condenser microphone in the soundhole, allowing you to isolate or blend each source together for ultimate gigging flexibility.

The guitar is hand-inspected and professionally set up in-store to ensure optimum playability, and you can customize the setup or strings to your preferences. The specs include a 25.5-inch scale length, 44.1mm nut width, and 21 frets with 6mm Pearl Dots and "CGP" Pearl Block on the 12th fret. The guitar is finished in vintage amber stain satin with ivory binding, chrome Grover Rotomatic machine heads, and a tortoiseshell pickguard. It comes with a standard Maton hard case and Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze 12-53 strings. Acoustic Centre, located in Melbourne, Australia, is the No. 1 dealer for Maton Guitars in Australia and offers free delivery on all Maton guitars Australia-wide.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at info@acousticcentre.com.au or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
