Maton EA808 'Australian' Acoustic Guitar
The brand new Maton Australian (EA808) is the culmination of over 50 years of building guitars from Australian timber.
The EA808 showcases our indigenous timber at its best. Beautiful Blackwood back and sides combine with a premium quality Blackwood neck to produce a rich, well-balanced tone. A Bunya face with a Desert Acacia fingerboard and bridge complete the timber selection. This uniquely Australian guitar sits right up there with the best the world has to offer.
This amazing instrument comes complete with a Maton Flightcase.
