i was interested enough at one point to get maton to price one for me. i didn't ask for the specs to be identical to neil's, but the price came to around $5,000 new zealand. at that time the exchange rate was about half, so it would have been a good deal for me, but i decided not to buy it.quote:Originally posted by RavingChat:
[qb] Sure, Maton will do any customisation you want (at a price). Maton offer a set of custom options to make the guitar look different, so sure, you can make your EBG808 look like one of Neil's if you want. Check out the website www.maton.com.au[/qb]
you mention the martin small bodied guitars, besides the clapton one, they also have their own 'blue grass' model. i haven't seen it in a while, but last time i did it was about $700. i don't know how it sounds, but i have a martin DM that was in that price range and i love playing it and how it sounds. they make good guitars.
