The iconic small body acoustic "808" from Maton. Featuring solid Blackwood back and sides with a Solid Spruce top. The combination of a Solid Spruce Top with Solid Australian Blackwood is superb. The Blackwood delivers a warmth and breadth in the lows and low mids but still maintains beautiful definition and projection. Combine this with the resonance os a solid spruce top and you have a guitar that is voiced perfectly for acoustic or live performance. Tonally balanced and incredibly responsive, the EBG808 is the perfect performers guitar.
Absolutely stunning guitar finished in satin lacquer. Great intimate body size that sits naturally on your body and very comfortable in the hands. Designed for the gigging guitarist, the low end is controllable and workable whilst mids and top end cut through the mix with ease.
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. On board tonal controls allow further tonal refinement.
Come complete with a Maton hard case.
