As Maton says themselves “It takes a great guitar to meet the demands of such a great player”, and the Maton EBG808TE Tommy Emmanuel signature model lives up to the demand. The guitar’s AAA Grade Sitka Spruce top, and Queensland Maple back and sides with a Vintage Amber Satin Stain, paired with Maton’s scalloped X Bracing, give this guitar the capability t deliver a superb tone with the most delicate expressions or fercious attacks. The guitar dons 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. Outfitted with a Maton AP5 Pro pickup system to capture this guitar’s unparalleled voice in any performance setting, there is nothing that this guitar can’t do. The Maton EBG808TE was meticulously designed and built to Tommy Emmanuel’s specs making it a guitar fit for master, yet sure to inspire any player who lays their hands upon it.
