Great guitar - processing naja

26.01.2017
To anticipate:
The guitar is really a dream, both in terms of playability, optics, pickup system and sound. The only downside was the processing. I looked at two models and with both the waistbands were still sharp-edged and the neck rather semi-well set. This is actually not acceptable for a guitar in the price class - just the Bundstäbe - but nothing that can not be remedied. Thanks to the incomparably great Thomann team - ten minutes after the end of the Christmas Eve I have a guitar, which will accompany me for the next years.

The Maton M808 is for me a very distinctive guitar, whose sound you must like and which perhaps does not open up at first sight or 'hear'. Compared to other models and also guitars from other manufacturers, the sound is rather subtle with less bass and treble and emphasized midrange. Because of the selected wood, the guitar impresses with its incredible dynamism. Both silent finger-pickings as well
Hard strumming with plectrum sounds wonderfully differentiated and clear. This was very important to me, because as a soloist I am dependent on using the dynamic bandwidth to make my sets interesting. The more you have the Maton in your hand, the more the sound and the character of the instrument is revealed, revealing a truly beautiful sound image without 'blinding' with too many bass or treble.

About the pickup, I think I do not lose many words, since that was done enough. He is a dream and replaces my two pickups, which I have installed in other guitars. Connect and the sun goes on ...

Visually, the instrument also produces a lot. Depending on the light incidence, shimmering to rather rustic and has a beautiful grain, so you can see that a really high-quality piece of wood was processed. Clearly, the guitar is optically rather simple and you must like the dark wood, but that is exactly what I like. Without a dashboard, which I removed, it looks even better for me. Small extra: When you take the guitar from the very well processed case, a very pleasant smell flows out of the case, which is even more pleasure to take the Maton M808 into the hand.

Conclusion:
I've been looking for a guitar that accompanies me at my frequent gigs and in the studio, supports my game and is good to play. All that plus the optics make the Maton M808 the perfect companion.
