Product Description

Maton EBG808TE - Tommy Emmanuel Signature

*We do all our own photography.  The guitar pictured is the exact one you will receive! 

The Maton EBG808TE is the signature model of the great Tommy Emmanuel! Built to Tommys specs, the TE series provides huge tone and amazing playability. This guitar features AAA Sitka Spruce on the top and Queensland Maple back and sides. It's bright but never harsh, and cuts in all the right ways. However, the low end is thunderous. Especially when plugged in thanks to the AP5 Pro preamp! These might just be our favorite guitar from Maton, and we can't keep them around!   The hardshell case is also included.  Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

Serial # - 22947 2AC

From Maton:

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 Tommy's 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! Our 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.
