This is a fabulous sounding guitar, it plays beautifully and is so responsive, it looks great and I will be very sorry to see it go.

This guitar has been well played over its 9 year lifespan but has mostly been used in home and always well looked after.
There are a couple of dings on it (see photos), and some light belt scarring on the back.

Purchased in 2003 and have kept it serviced; pots have been cleaned, the bridge has had some work (action lowered, intonation tweaked, I use 11gauge “Ernie Ball Super Slinky” strings for a bright sound), but otherwise this guitar hasn't missed a beat.

I'm not 100% on the specs but I've grabbed these from the Maton site which I’d assume are pretty close the only thing I can see that are different would be the Pickups. Not sure on what the specs are on this guitar but you can see them in the photos. If I were to guess, judging on the cost of this guitar back in 2003 and the ms2000 as it is now, that these old school puppies would be pumping out a much nicer sound.
