Maton SRS808C "Solid Road Series'' | Australia

Maton SRS808C "Solid Road Series'' | Australia

INFO

Only used for a couple of months from new - here we have an extraordinary Maton guitar at Sun-Sounds music shop in Sliema, Malta! This guitar is found in a very good condition with only some marks next to the bridge pins. This guitar has an incredible sustain and tone. It also worth to say an amazing pickup system which allows you to balance the mic and piezo.


Here is what MATON have to say about this beautiful piece:

 

The NEW Maton SRS808c incorporates solid Blackwood back and sides, a Western Red Cedar top and a soft cutaway. The SRS 808c 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.

Adjusted bracing heights as well as a locked15 foot radius for the arch of the back, gave us the plate resonance separation we were looking for between top and back.

 

We now have the full, open, lower frequency response we were looking for as well as a crisp, well defined treble response.

 

The new 808 series sounds a whole lot bigger than a small bodied guitar should. We were hoping the end of this journey would produce 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.
