Maton SRS808 Acoustic Guitar with AP5 Pro
Solid Blackwood back and sides and a Western Red Cedar top. The Maton SRS 808 is a 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. The Maton SRS808 is set up perfectly by our in store staff, so the playability and action of the guitar is even accross the whole fretboard, making playing a breeze.
