The NEW Maton SRS808c incorporates solid Blackwood back and sides, a Western Red Cedar top and a soft cutaway. The SRS 808c is an absolutely beautiful little guitar and combines the warm, full tones of Blackwood with the top end sparkle of Cedar.
A forward shifting of the X braces and the shifting of scallop peaks to nodal points around the soundboard help to enhance the vibration of the top. The shifting of the X braces also allowed the inclusion of a second, parallel tone bar which allows the scalloping of both tone bars, and spreads the load while reducing mass.
The AP5-Pro Pickup System comes as standard, ensuring you have the very best in acoustic guitar pick up technology at your fingertips. The AP5-Pro now features Separate Microphone and Piezo input controls allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through to the tone circuits and master volume. Highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments. This newly upgraded microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing via an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artists style. Whether you want to play acoustically or through an amp, this guitar will sound phenomenal.
The new 808 series sounds a whole lot bigger than a small bodied guitar should. See why Maton guitars are famous around the world, and own something made in Australia with Australian timbers! You don’t need to be a professional player to own something that is well made, gorgeous sounding, holds its value incredibly well, and will improve with age.
