It incorporates the bracing and design elements of the 75th Traditional, along with the rosewood back and sides and satin finish of the ER90C and the thinner body depth of the CS Classic.
The result is a small-bodied guitar with a full tonal response that rings like a bell. There is no lack of bass due to the thinner body depth (the body is 10mm thinner than the 75th Anniversary body) as the depth is offset by the incredible rich bass produced by the rosewood back and sides. The reduced body depth also provides a little more focus in front of the guitar which will make it a brilliant recording instrument.
Visually, the ER90 Traditional has borrowed its look from its older brother the ER90C, which includes multi-banded inner binding, white outer binding, a mahogany neck, streaky ebony fingerboard and bridge, and a streaky ebony headstock veneer. The mahogany neck provides tone and stability and the ebony board and bridge add a little top-end brightness to complement the rich bass of the rosewood back and sides.
The top bracing is fully scalloped and includes the laser cut bridge plate originally developed for the 75th Anniversary model, designed to increase strength without adding weight.
This is a wonderful guitar that will suit all styles of playing, from light fingerstyle to full-blown strumming, and of course, it is fitted with Maton's brilliant AP5 Pro pickup system which will make the ER90 Traditional absolutely unbeatable on stage....
