Maton EM100C Messiah Acoustic Guitar
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 tone woods 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 light weight responsive top with maximum projection. The traditional dreadnought body size is superb for recording, live performance or any demanding player. Loud, rich, and lush, the Messiah EM100C 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.

Collings Waterloo Series WL-14 Mahogany X-Brace Acoustic Guitar
There’s nothing quite like the sound of an all mahogany guitar. With its warm yet crisp tone and even note articulation, mahogany has been a go-to tone wood for country, blues and folk guitarists throughout the last century.
The new WL-14 Mahogany harkens back to the “Dust Bowl” era of simple and affordable instruments that reflected the elemental need for music in tough and trying times. Often accompanied by only boot stomps, the instruments that inspired the WL-14 needed to be punchy and full, but compact and easy to travel with. The comfortable and lightweight WL-14 is designed with these qualities to be a musical companion in just about any circumstance, and brings the soulful and unadorned character of 1920s and 30s instruments forward to today’s musicians. Built by hand with love and care, each Waterloo is made of all solid tone woods one at a time in Austin, Texas.
Hardshell TKL case included.
