Maton EBG808TE Tommy Emmanuel GuitarEBG808TE
The Maton EBG808TE Tommy Emmanuel, is an Australian-Made guitar for one of the world's greatest guitarists.
If you've ever seen Tommy Emmanuel perform you will know he is one of the world's greatest guitarists and one of the most inspirational musicians on the planet. It takes a great guitar to meet the demands of such a player. Designed in conjunction with t Tommy, the TE series guitars are an outstanding tribute to Tommy's musicianship and Maton's superior craftsmanship. Built to Tommy's specifications, the TE series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing his name.
Tommy looks for a guitar with a superb tone, capable of the most delicate expression as well as the most ferocious attack. The neck must stay true regardless of the rigors of international travel and the guitar needs to perform at its peak; from Rome to Nashville, to Sydney! Our Tommy Emmanuel models features a Mother of Pearl block inlay on the 12th Fret, engraved with "C.G.P." The acronym stands for "Certified Guitar Player," a title bestowed on Tommy by Chet Atkins and held by only 3 other guitarists in the world - John Knowles, Jerry Reed, and Steve Warriner. Tommy has done Australia proud and we are honoured that he continues to use Maton as his guitar of choice.
