If you've ever seen Tommy Emmanuel perform you will know he is one of the world's greatest guitarists, and one of the most inspirational musicians on the planet.
It takes a great guitar to meet the demands of such a great player. Designed in conjunction with guitar great Tommy Emmanuel, the TE series guitars are an outstanding tribute to Tommy's musicianship and Maton's superior craftsmanship.
Built to Tommys specifications, the TE series provides the huge tone and performance you would expect from a guitar bearing the name. Tommy looks for a guitar with superb tone, capable of the most delicate expression as well as the most ferocious attack.
The neck must stay true regardless of the rigours of international travel and the guitar needs to perform at its peak, from Rome, to Nashville, to Sydney!
