A Maton masterpiece. Blending traditional materials with exquisite craftsmanship. The Messiah represents a total, no compromise approach. Flawless attention to detail guarantees your Messiah will be an instrument of pride and pleasure for many years to come. The common pairing of Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood Back and Sides, the Maton EM100 808 will carry very familiar tonal characteristics. This guitar will be a joy to play and could be just what your collection has been missing.
This instrument is equiped with the AP5 Pro. The AP5 Pro now features Separate Microphone and Piezo input controls allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through to the tone circuits and master volume. Highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments.
This newly upgraded microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing via an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artists style.
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood considered standard of the modern era. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking.
