Maton EM100C 808 Messiah Bluegrass Acoustic Guitar

Maton EM100C 808 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 and premium Indian Rosewood back and sides. The Messiah sounds as good as it looks. Indian Rosewood is a beautiful tone wood that offers up an incredibly resonant, deep warm bass whilst still projecting beautiful midrange and clear tops. This king of tone woods is reserved for the Messiah models and the custom shop guitars from Maton. The Sitka Spruce top delivers clear, crisp tops with an even balanced tone that has excellent projection and volume. Scalloped internal bracing makes for a light weight responsive top with maximum projection. Spruce and Rosewood have long stood as the ultimate timber combination. The EM100C-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 EM100C Messiah Dreadnought. The 808 body size is superb for recording, live or for the player looking for more detail to shine through. Focused, rich, and lush. A true acoustic legend. The EM100C 808 Messiah, Australian made and made to last a lifetime.  

On board AP5 Pro pickup system delivers the ultimate pickup system utilising both a piezo transducer under the bridge in combination with a condenser mic located inside the sound hole. You can isolate or blend both systems to deliver every nuance of your playing to a live audience.  

Comes with Maton branded Hiscox flight case included
