"It feels like I bought a piano "
General Ni 11.02.2024
After 23 years of playing mainly electric (1974 Strat), then 10 years playing only nylon string (Alhambra 9P CW E2), I decided to give a try and transition to acoustic steel string.
The reason was my encounter with two Matons, the SRS808C and the EBG808C Nashville that a friend has and I had the chance to try. Both very nice, but the Nashville is of course superior.
I have to mention that I have tried many high end acoustic guitars from other friends, mostly Taylors, a few Martins and a couple of Lakewood, but none of them really spoke to me, especially plugged in.
After going through the different Maton models I found the J.R. model that ticked all the boxes for me.
First of all it has a simplistic beauty, that suits perfect my taste.
Many people say that Matons suck unplugged, but I have a different opinion. The guitar has a deep, balanced and already mature sound, with rich overtones and great sustain! Also very good articulation and note separation. It really sounds like a piano!! Excellent in any aspect!!
Plugged in, is crazy good! I have been reading about how good the AP5 PRO pickup system is, but I am really blown away!
I play professionally, so a very good amplified sound is important to me.
Of course I don't have a reference and no way to know if the one I received, is a very good, a not good or somewhere in the middle, since I didn't have the chance to compared it with two or three others of the same model.
But it sounds so good to my ears and I like it's unique"character", compared to the SRS808C and the EBG808C Nashville.
I couldn't be more happy with this guitar and I am looking forward to use it on stage!!
I highly recommend it!!

Superbe guitare

Guitare très agréable à jouer, avec un son homogène sur tout le manche. Le réglage (action basse) est parfait pour un jeu en fingerstyle.
Une fois branchée (ampli AER), elle sonne bien mieux que ma Taylor 414ce que j'aime pourtant aussi beaucoup. Le confort de jeu est identique. La Maton est un peu plus lourde et un peu plus massive, mais elle est tout aussi confortable.
C'est ma première "Maton" , après 2 Taylors et j'avoue que je suis totalement tombé sous le charme de cette guitare.
