This is an interesting and unique guitar for the following reasons:
- It is the first “production” Maton with a red cedar top
- It was designed by Brad Clarke and little old me in 1996
- Only 125 were made between 1996 and 2003.
- Maton lost the manufacturing records giving this custom model an air of mystery.
- The sound board braces are slightly scalloped
- Finally, The “EMJ” stands for Electric/ Music Junction. I worked for The Music Junction from 1990 to 1998.
