Maton Vera May Limited Edition

3.699,00

Limited Edition

The Vera May includes a number of firsts for Maton. The headstock is an elegant rethink of our W.A May headstock, which in itself is a 21st century interpretation of the headstock that appeared on the very first Maton Bill May built in 1946. An elegant gloss finished streaky ebony veneer with a Mother of Pearl logo contrasts beautifully with a figured blackwood headstock veneer.

The 808 sized body is bound with ebony and inner pinstripe bindings. The rosette has been carefully designed to match also featuring ebony and pinstripe rings.
The soundboard of the Vera May is made from Lutz Spruce, a naturally occurring hybrid of Sitka Spruce and White Spruce. As often occurs with natural hybrids Lutz has a certain amount of “hybrid vigour” combining the best elements of both trees. The result is a soundboard with the stiffness of Sitka but with a little less density. This results in  a greater balance of subtle overtones which is a delightful combination in a smaller bodied guitar like the Vera MayThe blackwood back, sides and neck are finished in our special tuned satin finish, providing all that warmth and midrange our 808 series is famous for. The fingerboard features snowflake inlays and a 12th fret Vera May signature block inlay .

The first 100 guitars will come with a limited edition Ivory Hiscox case and the label hand signed by Vera May herself.
