Launching next Wednesday (24 February), the online store will list guitars, amplifiers and pedals from Emmanuel’s personal collection, as well as several autographed signature models.
The six autographed Maton 808 signature models include traditional and cutaway models. These feature a special “C.G.P” inlay at the 12th fret, a reference to a title bestowed upon Emmanuel by legendary guitarist Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player. Meanwhile, the kangaroo on the headstock resembles Emmanuel’s tour pendant.
In the terms of amplification, Emmanuel is offering up five of his signature Udo Rosener De Capo 75 acoustic amps – also autographed. Said the guitarist about the amps,“I’ve been in situations where I’ve had the amp beside me on stage, and the crew have been astounded at how big it sounds.”
Watch Tommy Emmanuel show off some of the guitars from his store below:
A portion of proceeds from the Reverb store will be donated to Guitars For Vets, which gives instruments to US military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
