Maton_BB1200_JH_Josh_Homme_Semi_Hollow_Electric_Guitar_Sunburst_3454657NEW - This has to be up there with the most versatile sounding guitars on the market today - featuring a semi-hollow body with centre block, this guitar can do everything from Jazz to hard rock and metal.
A ferocious hollow body guitar with Victorian Blackwood front and back, along with a Rock Maple neck gives the BB1200JH maximum sustain, producing a beautifully warm and rounded tone with enough bite to give ensuring the BB1200 holds its own on any stage, anytime. 

The strings are anchored to a Trapeze tailpiece and bridge. The BB1200JH comes with Maton MBB1 and MBN1 Bad Boy pickups with Alnico 8 magnets. Each pickup can be split to single coil mode, drastically increasing the number of sounds on offer. The perfect blend of tradition and an irreverent rock 'n roll attitude, this rocker can shine in any style.

Maton_SRS808c_Acoustic_Electric_Guitar_Blackwood_Solid_Road_Series_748659NEW - 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. Adjusted bracing heights as well as a locked15 foot radius for the arch of the back, gave us the plate resonance separation we were looking for between top and back. 

Maton now has the full, open, lower frequency response players were looking for as well as a crisp, well defined treble response. The new 808 series sounds a whole lot bigger than a small bodied guitar should. We were hoping the end of this journey would produce a guitar that amazes the player at first strum, then continues to impress as each aspect of the sound of the guitar meets and surpasses the player’s expectation.

Maton_EBG808TE_Acoustic_Electric_Guitar_Natural_Tommy_Emmanuel_TE_Series_94380NEW - 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!

Maton's Tommy Emmanuel models 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.
