The Maton EBG 808c Michael Fix signature model was developed with Michael and is designed to complement his playing style. The combination of a “AAA” Sitka Spruce soundboard, Ebony fingerboard and bridge and solid Queensland Maple back, sides and neck produces a tone that is rich, full, well balanced and with the glassy highs essential to Michael’s tone.
Consider this Maton a workhorse primarily meant to go on stage and work amplified. The pickup systems is arguably the best live performance system you can get at a fair price. The AP5 Pro features Separate Microphone and Piezo input controls allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through to the tone circuits and master volume. Highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments. This newly upgraded microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing via an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit to your individual style.
