Maton guitars are truly one of the most special instruments you will ever own. Their tone is unique as is their feel and they almost feel alive in your hands the minute you strum the first note. We are incredibly lucky to have a company in Australia like Maton carrying on what Bill May started over 70 years ago and the Maton EBG808C 808 Size Nashville Acoustic/Electric Guitar w Cutaway is no exception to the stellar lineup of guitars that Maton offer.

The Maton EBG808C 808 Size Nashville Acoustic/Electric Guitar w Cutaway is the standard Maton EBG808 but with a cutaway to help you reach those extra notes at the top of the guitars range. The first noticeable difference is the upgrade to AAA Select Sitka Spruce which is a quality of Timber Maton only reserve for their best guitars. It gives the guitar a lovely balanced sound and looks fantastic. The other unique thing about this guitar is the C.G.P inscription at the 12th fret. C.G.P or "Certified Guitar Player," is 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.
