Maton’s senior luthiers have put their collective heads together to create a guitar worthy of this significant landmark. In a first for Maton, this guitar features a gloss soundboard and satin back and sides. The tonal result of this combination is the full, natural tone associated with Maton’s satin finish and a sophisticated top end usually associated with full gloss models like the Messiah. The back, sides and neck are made from select Victorian Blackwood with Rosewood binding while the bridge and fingerboard are Indian Rosewood. The soundboard is AAA Sitka Spruce. The series comes in two body styles, the Dreadnought Cutaway and the smaller BG808 Cutaway. Both are fitted with gold Grover machine heads, tortoise shell pickguard and are fitted with the superb AP5 Pro pickup system. The bracing is fully scalloped and top and back are designed for maximum tonal performance.
This is a really elegant guitar, full of guitar building sophistication and tradition. After all, it has been 70 years in the making….
The 70th Anniversary now comes with The Maton Case which is designed specifically for our guitars. We feel these cases offer the best protection for the instruments we create.
