Maton M808 Acoustic/Electric M-Series Guitar

The new Maton M808 M-Series guitar delivers a depth and subtle tone which is not often found in other instruments. It adds a new, rich colour to Maton’s tonal palette with a full bottom end, strong mid-range and treble presence. The M-series features Sapele tops, backs and sides. Sapele is an African tonewood (sometimes known as African Mahogany), a popular substitute for the endangered Honduran Mahogany. The two woods are almost identical tonally and aesthetically. The neck is Fijian Mahogany and the bridge and fingerboard are Indian Rosewood. The M-series are appropriately dressed. Simple pinstripe rosette and inner bindings combine with a black outer binding to produce an understated classy finish. No frills but elegant, just like the music that inspired them. A bone nut and saddle provide the finishing touches for a brilliant vintage tone. Under the hood the M series share the recent developments of Maton’s acoustic range. Scalloped bracing and careful thicknessing have resulted in a guitar with a rich, full tone, very Maton but with plenty of that brightness and compression associated with the best all Mahogany guitars.
