condition: good
make / manufacturer: Maton
model name / number: EBG-808 Artist
This guitar is an amazing player, especially for fingerstyle. The model played by greats like Tommy Emmanuel and Brooks Robertson. I bought it from the original owner during the pandemic and haven't really played it, so, although I love it, I am selling. It is set up well and plays like a dream. There are dings all over it, but nothing that affects sound or use. I tried to photograph all the surface imperfections but I'm sure there are more. Has real style this guitar and looks like what it is, well loved and well used.

Has a solid "AAA" Sitka spruce soundboard, solid Blackwood back and sides, and one of the world's best acoustic pickups in the AP5-PRO. Comes with original hard case from Maton in Australia.
