Suhr Mateus Asato Signature Classic S Antique HSS Guitar, Distressed Shell Pink
Music Store Live is proud to present this Suhr Mateus Asato Signature guitar with just the right level of relic that it makes the guitar feel gently worn in without making it look like it's been dragged behind a truck through a gravel road. This is very tastefully done, as far as relic jobs go.
Sonically, the guitar is designed to pump out some tight, punchy, and aggressive sounds while still having the versatility to clean up nicely. The pickups are modern-sounding and have moderately high output to them without being a guitar that's exclusively usable for hard rock and metal sounds. It really cleans up quite nicely too and can get some beautiful bluesy, lightly overdriven sounds as well. As a "sideman" guitarist, Mateus needs to be able to cover a wide range of sonic options without having to stop in between every song to change to a different guitar. His new signature Classic S will do that. It can sound like anything from a classic strat (with a bit more punch to it) to something more modern and hot-rodded. There's really nothing you could throw at this guitar that it wouldn't be able to handle.
For a guitar that'll sound as good in your hands as it will look when it's hanging on a stand - This is a pretty surefire way to go.
We are pleased to announce, new for NAMM 2018, the Mateus Asato Signature Series™ Suhr® guitars. We are offering two Mateus Signature instruments, a Classic S and Classic S Antique. Both guitars feature versatile HSS pickup switching along with two ML single coil pickups and a new custom humbucker we’ve built for Mateus. We will be releasing more information about the custom humbucker as we get closer to shipping the guitars.
If you haven’t seen Mateus on tour with Tori Kelly or Jessie J, you’ve most likely run across him on social media, where Mateus has a huge audience of fans that tune in to hear him play on Facebook and Instagram.
The ML (Mike Landau) pickups offer a balance of tight lows, focused midrange and smooth top-end sparkle. ML pickups incorporate a modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field needed to accommodate instruments with flatter neck radiuses and today’s string gauges.
