Maton Guitars

Australia's leading manufacturer of Acoustic and Acoustic / Electric Guitars

Until the late 1930's the Australian guitar manufacturing industry was virtually non existent and good quality guitars were hard to find. The best guitars, it was well understood, came from the U.S.A. Bill May, a Melbourne born jazz musician, woodwork teacher, and luthier, decided to change all that...

Maton are Australia's leading manufacturer of Acoustic and Acoustic / Electric Guitars. We pride ourselves on making the best guitars possible at a price musicians can afford! Please take some time to view our range of superbly handcrafted Guitars, Accessories and Custom Options.

Maton Sapphire SG 124

Does anyone know the value of a Maton Sapphire SG 124 - 11/79?

Maton SG124

Maton Baroque bass c.1973 for sale

Based in Melbourne. May sell if the price is right.

Maton Colonial 1977 - Selling - Valuer where/how can find one?

Anyone with any further info on this guitar? Seems rare, haven't found another searching online.

It has numbers and all but appears a batch of files hiding in Maton so finding hard to get all specs

Beautiful sound, everyone who hears or plays it comments so. Lovely neck, fits my smaller female hand perfectly, not too wide across fretboard or neck too chunky, love it, but health one reason for letting go!

Anyway if anyone can let me know of guitar valuer or the lie, please help. I'm south of Newcastle, but anywhere is fine.


Maton Folk 150 12 string

I have just re-strung my Maton Folk 150 12 string guitar and the action is as good as ever.

The serial number is 237 so looks quite rare.
It is for sale if anyone would like to see some photo's

Many thanks

Maton C-15 for sale (could be 1974 date)

I have a Maton C-15 for sale. Serial no. 131 out of 352 manufactured, so probably one of those made in 1974. (The Maton site doesn't divide them by year.)

Don't be put off by the price - it's an attention-grabbing device.

It's not in great condition - ass a young backpacker, I took it around the world with me in 1979/80 - but I can't find evidence that one has been sold before.

Maton Starline

Hi. I have a Maton Starline EG90 in very good condition. It plays beautifully for such an old treasure. I did see an earlier post that they were worth around $1500. Is this correct. I have researched through the Maton Archives that it was manufactured in 1962 and 44 of them were made. Is this an acurate valuation? They were quite an expensive guitar in their day and given the new model is around 8 grand I would have thought that they were worth a lot more. Thanks. Dean

Maton C50

Hello fellow aficionados.

I have a 1972 Maton C50. I have played it all over the place. The tuners were replaced 25 years ago with gold plated Grovers. There is a slight bridge repair which was done in the Kinman factory years ago. It is in really good condition but as I have played it often and in many pubs and bbqs it has "patina". Genuine patina, not put on by an angle grinder and sandpaper. Does anyone have an idea of the value? It rings like a bell.
