The Maton Tommy Emmanuel Series Guitar

Designed in conjunction with Australian guitar player Tommy Emmanuel, the TE series guitars are a tribute to Tommy's musicianship and Maton's craftsmanship. Built to Tommys specifications, the TE series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing the name.


The Maton Tommy Emmanuel models feature a Mother of Pearl block inlay on the 12th Fret, engraved with "C.G.P." The acronym stands for "Certified Guitar Player," a title bestowed on Tommy by Chet Atkins and held by only 3 other guitarists in the world - John Knowles, Jerry Reed and Steve Warriner.
