What we say:

At A Glance:

Australia's Maton have a reputation for creating some of the finest instruments in the world. This EBW808 is no exception, with an all Blackwood construction that creates a distinctive tone which radiates bright trebles, pronounced mids and a rich low end.

Features We Love:


Native to Australia, Blackwood is notable for its sweet sound. Similar to koa or mahogany in tone but adding more of a shimmering high end that's sounds beautiful and cuts through the mix.


Maton's AP5 Pro is one of the most versatile yet natural-sounding acoustic pickup systems available today. Featuring individual controls for the microphone and piezo to supply a wide range of useable tones, while the sophisticated EQ section allows you to fine-tune your tone to get the exact sound you need in any room.

808 Body

The smaller and slimmer body makes for a comfortable instrument that's a joy to play both standing and seated.

Overall Rating 5/5 (1 reviews)

It was by far the finest instrument I’ve ever owned with great playability and wonderful sound quality, both plugged and unplugged.
