Maton Custom Shop EBG808TE 'Tommy Emmanuel' Personal Acoustic Electric Guitar

CUSTOM-SHOP-TE-PERSONAL

We are thrilled to stock the Maton EBG808 'TE Personal'. Entirely handmade in the Maton Custom Shop by master luthier, Andy Allen, this is the exact guitar that Tommy Emmanuel plays. Built to Tommy's exact specifications, the 'TE Personal' provides the tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing his name. 

Specs include solid Sitka Spruce & Queensland Maple tonewoods, an Indian Rosewood fretboard, bridge & headplate, and an incredible hand-shaped one-piece Mahogany neck.   Each top is hand-tuned with individually scalloped bracing to fine-tune the voice of the guitar. The timbers are all hand-selected by Andy Allen from the premium supply that is kept aside for Custom Shop guitars.

An 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. On board tonal controls allow further tonal refinement. 

This stunning guitar sounds punchy and full with a fantastic bass response that belies it's small stature. In short, it's the best 808 we've ever heard. Includes Flight case.
