The new Maton S808 is a delightful addition to the well established and much loved Maton 808 range.
New for 2019 is the Maton S808 small body all solid 808 Road Series acoustic guitar. This guitar is a delight to play, from its small but comfortable size and body to the amazing sound that it produces this is sure to be a hit with the most discerning of pickers! Cranbourne Music is an authorized Maton dealer.
This guitar produces a tone that is a complete surprise given the small size of its body. Scalloped bracing and a 95mm soundhole combine to make the Sitka Spruce top super responsive across all frequencies.
The solid Qld Maple back and sides provide a crisp, clear character to the tone and the full depth of the 808 body provides a deep, clean bass response.
An Ovangkol fingerboard and bridge add presence to the treble frequencies making this guitar ideal for fingerstyles or more intricate flat picking styles.
The S808, like all Maton Guitars is also available as a left handed instrument for a small additional fee.
