Maton EA80C ‘Australian’ Acoustic Electric Guitar


Check out this terrific Australian built high end electro dreadnought. The Maton EA80C features some rather special tone woods and locally sourced Australian materials to create a more distinct work of musical art that shimmers with tone and character. We especially like the use of Blackwood in the back and sides as well as in the neck, along with a Bunya face with a Desert Acacia fingerboard and bridge. Look close and you will see the various very classy but understated finishing touches and a perfect approach to craftsmanship. The Maton EA80C is one remarkable musical instrument and is sure to inspire and delight any demanding pro or experienced player.

This is what Maton have to say about this unique and wonderful sounding EA80C guitar – The Maton Australian (EA80C) is the culmination of over 50 years of building guitars from Australian timber. The Maton EA80C showcases our indigenous timber at its best. Beautiful Blackwood back and sides combine with a premium quality Blackwood neck to produce a rich, well-balanced tone. A Bunya face with a Desert Acacia fingerboard and bridge complete the timber selection. This uniquely Australian guitar sits right up there with the best the world has to offer.
