MATON TOMMY EMMANUEL - EBONY - TE-89 - Pre-Loved - 1989
Excellent condition. This Tommy Emmanuel signature acoustic/electric cutaway with battery powered pre-amp has been treasured by a professional musician and appeared on many stages in Australia - including guest appearances on tour with Midnight Oil.
AAA Solid Sitka Spruce top, Queensland Maple neck. Indian Rosewood bridge and fingerboard. Minimal fret wear and no fingernail gouges in wood. High gloss black finish has minor scratches as has the pickguard. Gold tuning pegs showing their age a little. Otherwise this guitar has been well cared for, always played in tune and had regular string changes.
The sound of this vintage instrument reflects the many years of its owner's diligent care and precise picking techniques producing clear tones throughout the tonal range, meaty, ringing bass and sweet, long sustain in the highs.
One of Maton's most successful models, the TE is still in production, retailing for $3150.00 AUD - in natural finish only; no black gloss "Ebony" models anymore.
Includes Maton T bar truss rod adjuster. In hard case. $2150.00.
