Simplicity and purity of tone lay at the heart of the Blackwood range of Guitars.
Pure Blackwood tone -clear, bright trebles, strong mid range and full bass. The all Blackwood construction produces a unique compression, blending frequencies into a new, unique voice.
The Dreadnought Cutaway and the 808 from the New Maton Blackwood Series will be available from the 14th August 2017, the rest of the range will be available later in the year.
There were rumours of this new series of blackwood guitars earlier this year.
And here they are finally in all their blackwood glory.
As a blackwood enthusiast what can I say?
The all-blackwood acoustic guitar should be an Aussie music icon.
Cole Clark has been doing this for a few years now. And finally Maton has joined the team.
My wish is that Maton would open up and tell us the back story of where the wood comes from.
Does the guitar industry want to encourage farmers to grow more quality tonewoods?
Where does this blackwood timber come from? Who grew it? Please tell us the story so that other farmers are inspired!
This new blackwood series would be the ideal opportunity to start that journey.
In the mean time congratulations to Maton.
I hope they sell like hot blackwoods!!
When someone does a video review of these I’ll post it here.
So here is a video of the new all-blackwood EBW70c from Maton Guitars courtesy of The Acoustic Centre in Melbourne, Victoria:
Here’s another video from Music Junction in Melbourne:
This new Blackwood Series from Maton seems to be creating quite a stir.
