Maton EM100J Messiah
A Maton masterpiece! Blending only the very best materials available, with exquisite craftsmanship, the Maton 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.
Featuring a newly tuned, scalloped braced top and Solid Rosewood back and side sets, this Australian Music Industry icon has taken its classic worldly timbers and expanded its tonal spectrum. A new Solid Mahogany Neck adds thickness to its deeper and richer tone and again the Maton UV paint finishes this model with a finer and more refined quality. The Maton signature M MOP decal on the headstock is the finishing touch to a guitar that is truly a world class performer.
The idea behind the new Messiah is to bring together the best of the world’s tonewoods to reinvigorate Maton's flagship model. You could say the Messiah has been reborn, in that it now stands out from the pack aesthetically and tonally. The folks at Maton have taken the Messiah and maximized its tone and projection. The combination of scalloped bracing, mahogany neck, a thinner, rounded, back and an ultra thin UV finish has brought the Messiah up to where it belongs - The king of Maton’s range.
This instrument is equipped 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.
