Sound — 10
Amazing sound. The salesman told me the EM325C was the "choice of professionals" and "the ultimate live guitar" and now I do not doubt him. A rich, and full sound (easily adjustable to individual settings) perfectly suited to what i wanted. Using it through a PA system, I often experience feedback and an unwanted change of volume, bass, etc is needed. Being an acoustic, the sounds are limited (to a certain extent) but its excellent sound makes upo for this.
Overall Impression — 10
This being the first 'good' guitar I've bought, i'm over the moon about it. If this were unfortunatley stolen I would definitley buy it again, although perhaps a different model.
Reliability & Durability — 8
This guitar definitley will withstand live playing and will last for years to come. The hardware will last as will the finish. The strap buttons are solid enough, and is a totally depenable guitar.

Made in 2000 22 Frets Maton's acclaimed AP5 pickup system. (Bass, Treble, Volume and Mid-range controls), powered by two AA batteries Rosewood Fingerboard, with Queensland Maple Mahogony for the body A lead came with it, but that was from the guitar shop I bought it from, and has nothing to do with Maton.
