Maton EBG808CLG Gloss Black Performer Acoustic Guitar

MATON

Maton EBG808CLG Performer

The Maton EBG808CL is designed for the live performer. It is the same overall size as the 808 series guitars but it with a narrower body depth to makes it perfect for live work. It is an incredibly comfortable body style that minimises the reach required over the guitar and puts you closer to the mic in a live situation. The slimmer body renders a very controllable tone that is easily EQ'd and amplified to high volume levels whilst minimising feedback issues.

This model features an all Solid Bunya top, Bunya yields an outstanding soundboard timber - arguably the best Australia has to offer. Maton pioneered the use of this tonewood in the mid 1990's and have made some of our finest guitars from Bunya. Bunya has an earthy, wild, evocative tone, a change from the conventional - but with the volume, tone and beauty to stand up in its own right. Bunya is also a sustainable guitar making soundboard, reaching maturity in 80 years. Compare that to the 300 plus years it takes to grow Spruce. The back and sides are Queensland Maple, a rainforest hardwood from Northern Queensland. This timber is light, strong, and visually striking. Queensland Maple is extremely well balanced with an even response across all frequencies. Often compared to Mahogany for its tonal warmth but with more bite and definition to its low end. 

AP5 pick up, and full gloss black finish. Come complete with Maton case.
