  • Acoustic 70th Anniversary Dreadnought : Maton
The Maton 70th Anniversary Series reflects the experience and guitar wisdom made possible by 70 years of continuous guitar building in Australia.

Maton's senior luthiers have put their collective heads together to create a guitar worthy of this significant landmark. In a first for Maton this guitar features a gloss soundboard and satin back and sides. The tonal result of this combination is the full, natural tone associated with Maton's satin finish and a sophisticated top end usually associated with full gloss models like the Messiah. The back, sides, and neck are made from select Victorian Blackwood with Rosewood binding while the bridge and fingerboard are Indian Rosewood. The sound board is AAA Sitka Spruce. The series comes in two body styles, the Dreadnought Cutaway and the smaller EBG808 Cutaway. Both are fitted with gold Grover machine heads, tortoise shell pick guard and are fitted with the superb AP5-Pro pickup system. The bracing is fully scalloped and top and back are designed for maximum tonal performance.

This is a really elegant guitar, full of guitar building sophistication and tradition. After all, it has been 70 years in the making...
