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 Supreme for sale

I am keen to sell my Maton Supreme EG240. Not sure what it is worth as I can't find any others like it for sale. I swapped it for an American Standard Telecaster about 11 years ago. White with gold hardware and trim. In playing condition and refretted 7 years ago. Serial No. 1545. The Maton archive says these were made early 60's.

Maton Supreme

Hi zday. I'm keen to find out what you'd sell it for. I'm looking at one (1960 roughly), which it needs some repairs. I could put it together into good shape for less than a $1000. It has no body damage, i.e. dents or scratches. I'd prefer one without repairs necessary though. I would consider a supreme under the above costing?
Which would be of course less than a $1000.

I too have an EG240 serial no. 1274 and am also interested in selling as it doesn't get played much anymore. Its a blondie with a single cutaway and twin pickups. Everything seems original except the machine heads which are Gibson ones. I also have no idea what they're worth. Good luck

Still have the EG240 for sale?

I'm pretty interested...

Please email me at jules (at) intoma.com.au

Matom Supreme

Hello

I have a Maton Supreme EG240 in excellent condition and do not wish to sell it . I am curious as to why you wish to sell yours and in fact whether you already have. One of these went some months ago on ebay for around $2000. Mine is blonde, I believe most were sunburst. Yours you say is white (blonde ?) with gold hardware. Mine has chrome hardware and an earlier serial no. than yours. I am very interested in these Guitars and would appreciate a reply.

Regards ,

Wayne

EG240

I want to buy a newer guitar that is more versatile. I have used this guitar for playing blues in a duo with a harmonica player and it was great for that esp on John Lee Hooker style blues. I'm not doing this so much now and need the money to buy another guitar. Here's links to some pics. I'm interested in your opinion.

EG240

Many thanks for the pics. Incredible looking guitar, I didn't know they made a white one. Matons of this style and vintage are being snapped up on ebay usually fetching between $1500 to $2000.
My comments on yours: Machine heads are non original but that is to be expected as the ones fitted to these old Matons were rubbish, mine siezed up.
I'm pretty sure the bridge is not original, they didn't come with adjustable type.
Looks like it has had a stop tailpiece fitted at some time.
Not sure about the trapeze tailpiece that is on it now but suspect it is no original.
Never the less it is a fine old collectible instrument. hope you find a good home for it and thank you again.

Maton C25 Vintage 1970 Guitar

I would like to sell my Maton C25 VIntage Guitar.

Maton C25 Vintage Guitar

Hi, I would love to purchase a guitar similar to the one my Dad had. I remember it had a number on it I think in the 400's. As a kid I always wanted to play it. I moved away from home and he gave it away to a work friend that moved to Rockhampton. My sister and I were devastated and pleaded with him to try to ask for it back but of course it was too late. He does not have his details so it is lost. It was a gorgeous deep amber and reddish in colour and had the fancy sound hole. If you or anyone can help me my email is jemagem@hotmail.com. Thanks Jan

Maton C25 Vintage 1970 Guitar

I have one of these guitars and was wondering what the going price of these are, mine is in very good condition
I would appreciate if you could give me an idea. Thanks

Re: maton c30 spruce top

A mate just gave me his old c30. I had it restored - back glued up and bridge put back on. it sounds great and I love it nearly as much as my old ss. I just wonder roughly what it would be worth? It looks like its had an easy life as it is in excellent condition.
ie. should I spend a couple of hundred $ on a solid case?
ps. no its not hot or for sale.
