King Of The Hill.Without going to the Maton Custom Shop, this is as good as it gets. A solid AAA grade Sitka Spruce top paired with premium Indian Rosewood back and sides, a beautiful tonewood that offers up an incredibly resonant, deep warm bass whilst still projecting beautiful midrange and clear tops. Maton reserves this king of tonewoods for the Messiah models and Custom Shop guitars. The Sitka Spruce top delivers clear, crisp highs with an even balanced tone that has excellent projection and volume. Scalloped internal bracing makes for a lightweight responsive top with maximum projection. The EM100-808 Messiah utilises its smaller body shape to focus in its low end and produce a more contained version frequency wise than its big brother, the EM100 Messiah Dreadnought. The 808 body size is superb for recording, live performance, or any demanding player. Focused, rich, and lush, the Messiah 808 is a true acoustic legend.
The onboard AP5 Pro Pickup System delivers the ultimate live tone, by utilising both a piezo transducer under the bridge and a condenser microphone located inside the soundhole. You can isolate or blend both sources to deliver every nuance of your playing to a live audience. The Messiah comes complete with a custom tour-ready flight case.
