The Flatpicker by The Maton Custom Shop was a very basic choice to make. Create a Simple and Elegant straight up Dreadnought that could appeal to a variety of players from Bluegrass pickers to a home studio Muso who wants a guitar with plenty of Voice. This Custom Shop Model is a combination of Classic Looks, Classic Tones, and Classic Timbers. The European Spruce Top and Indian Rosewood back and sides are a fundamental combination for such a guitar. It had to be Bass heavy with thick midrange tones and piercing trebles. A Classic Mahogany One Piece neck adds to the big sound and lovers of the Classic Flat top acoustic guitar will not be disappointed. Just think Doc Watson or Tony Rice and you will be at home with the Flatpicker. Strummed in a song or Ragtime classic, the Flatpicker has been one of my favorite journeys as a Luthier.
