It's been 6 years since my last purchase which was a Martin HD28E Retro.  Today FedEx brought this: Maton EBG 808 TE Tommy Emmanuel Signature. 🙂

@Shenandoah beautiful guitar!  Enjoy.  Let's hear a recording with it! 😎

Using your comparison terms the "booming cannon" may be partly due to the dreadnought size of the Martin?  I know nothing of sizes of Maton.  Using Martin terms, the only sizes I understand, would an 808 be comparable to a dreadnought or 000 or which?

Thanks for sharing with us your NGD!
