Maton EGB808TE Tommy Emmanuel
If you've ever seem Tommy Emmanuel perform you will know he is one of the world's greatest guitarist, and one of the most inspirational musicians on the planet.
It takes a great guitar to meet the demands of such a great player. Designed in conjunction with guitar great Tommy Emmanuel, the TE series guitars are an outstanding tribute to Tommy's musicianship and Maton's superior craftsmanship. Built to Tommys specifications, the TE series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing the name.
Tommy looks for a guitar with superb tone, capable of the most delicate expression as well as the most ferocious attack. The neck must stay true regardless of the rigours of international travel and the guitar needs to perform at its peak, from Rome, to Nashville, to Sydney!
This guitar features a soundboard made of solid Sitka spruce with scalloped bracing for optimum tonal performance. The back and sides are made of solid Queensland Maple, which delivers a rich and articulate tone with punch and clarity. It comes loaded with an AP5 Pro Pickup System that combines both a piezo transducer under the bridge and a condenser microphone in the soundhole, allowing you to isolate or blend each source together for ultimate gigging flexibility.
The Maton EGB808TE Tommy Emmanuel models also feature a Mother of Pearl block inlay on the 12th Fret, engraved with "C.G.P." The acronym stands for "Certified Guitar Player," a title bestowed on Tommy by Chet Atkins and held by only 3 other guitarists in the world - John Knowles, Jerry Reed and Steve Warriner.
