    Remote Purchase of EA808

    I had reservations about purchasing a guitar unseen. The team at acoustic centre were fantastic. They took the time to play all the guitars I was interested in and recommended this one. It is honestly one of the nicest Matons I have played. I am so happy with it. The guitar arrived immaculately in the mail 2 days later. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    All Australian

    I liked the look and specs of the EA 808 Australian, but all I really had to go on were the description and video. I have not been disappointed. The guitar has amazing build quality and the woods have a beauty of their own, it is a real joy to play, the sound is balanced, clear, expressive, with amazing tone, what you hear in the video is what you get. As always, the buying experience from AC was faultless.
