Maton Tommy Emmanuel TE1 Signature Artist Edition. Complete with Maton Hiscox case.
Built May 2007 in Australia and set up by Tony's UK Guitar Tech
Amazing quality and great sounding Cutaway Dreadnought.
Specs are shown below.
The guitar is in excellent condition. No visible marks on the top, frets are in excellent condition, brand new strings. A couple of minor dings on the back and two areas where the lacquer has dulled/been rubbed off. Can only be seen at certain angles but I've done my best to show this on the last image.
All round a fantastic hand built guitar. They retail for £2,700 new and this one has matured and dried out beautifully and is a very resonant and loud guitar. A bargain at this price.
