This instrument has been purchased.  Available by special order - give us a call for details!  The Maton Custom shop are Maton's finest guitars which are built entirely by Master Lutheir Andy Allen.  Here is what Andy has to say about this model:

"The CS Classic is my Custom Shop take on an Acoustic Guitar Standard. The 000 or OM (Orchestra Model) body shape has been an icon for all acoustic guitar makers for decades now. Utilising the timbers that are most recognised in the style, I developed The CS Classic with  a mix of AAA Grade European Spruce and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. After extensive testing tonally and geometrically I settled upon a forward shifted X brace pattern to bring the rich bottom end from the guitar whilst maintaining an earthy mid-range and that classic Maton Glassy top register. It is not only the  balance of tonality I am proud of, but the projection, clarity, and volume that this shape captures so well. It truly is a classic shape.
I now realise after prototyping, research, and development why so many incredible guitar players choose this amazing guitar to help realise their voice. It is not just the comfort of this shape for hours of practice and performance but the ability to pick, strum and play fingerstyle on this shape means it becomes part of who you are as a musician."
- Andy Allen July 2015

This guitar features a solid AAA European Spruce top, solid select Indian Rosewood back and sides, light bracing,  herringbone purfling and rosette, Ebony fretboard and bridge, Snowflake fretboard inlays, and the AP5 Pro pickup system with a mic/sensor blend.  This model is a favorite of guitar icon Eric Johnson, and for good reason.  The tone is fantastic with remarkable projection and sustain as well as a wealth of rich overtones.  Includes photos of the wood selection, the guitar being built, and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Andy Allen.  Also includes a Hiscox case and a custom setup by your friends at Steilberg String Instruments.
