Brand: Maton

Sold out, please call 02 9817 2173 for next shipment.

The CS Classic is my Custom Shop take on an Acoustic Guitar Standard. The 000 or OM (Orchestra Model) body shape has been an icon for all acoustic guitar makers for decades now. Utilising the timbers that are most recognised in the style, I developed The CS Classic with a mix of AAA Grade European Spruce and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. After extensive testing tonally and geometrically I settled upon a forward shifted X brace pattern to bring the rich bottom end from the guitar whilst maintaining an earthy mid-range and that classic Maton Glassy top register. It is not only the balance of tonality I am proud of, but the projection, clarity, and volume that this shape captures so well. It truly is a classic shape.
