The Maton SRS 808 6-String Electro Acoustic Guitar is a high-end electro-acoustic with a classic Orchestra body shape. Expertly crafted from choice cedar, Australian blackwood, maple and East Indian rosewood, this stunning guitar produces a big, warm tone, ideal for a variety of playing styles.
The new Maton SRS 808 incorporates solid Blackwood back and sides and a Western Red Cedar top. The SRS 808 is an absolutely beautiful little guitar and combines the warm, full tones of Blackwood with the top end sparkle of Cedar. 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.
The new 808 series sounds a whole lot bigger than a small bodied guitar should. Maton have produced 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.
