The Maton Messiah EM100C 808 Features tuned, scalloped braced top, and Solid Rosewood back and side sets, this Australian Music Industry icon has taken its classic worldly timbers and expanded its tonal spectrum. A new Solid Mahogany Neck adds thickness to its deeper and richer tone and again the Maton UV paint finishes this model with a finer and more refined quality. The Maton signature M MOP decal on the headstock is the finishing touch to a guitar that is truly a world-class performer.
The idea behind the new Messiah is to bring together the best of the world’s tonewoods to reinvigorate our flagship model. You could say the Messiah has been reborn, in that it now stands out from the pack aesthetically and tonally.We have taken the Messiah and maximised its tone and projection. The combination of scalloped bracing, mahogany neck, a thinner, rounded, back and an ultra-thin UV finish has brought the Messiah up to where it belongs - The king of Maton’s range
