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.

Did you ever find one? I have a 1965 Maton Fyrbyrd, sunburst with black scratch plate, original equipment (incl. Bigsby), road weary condition. Sounds great!

EM325c truss rod

I recently bought a EM325c sceond hand which the previous owner had bought new 5 months ago. Mint condition, but it's obviously time for truss rod tweak as there is too much relief, which has raised the action not only too high, but too the point where the intonation is way out. The only problem is I can't seem to find any access to the truss rod. I assume it's supposed to be from the soundhole end of the neck but there is no access there.
Any suggestions or help appreciated.

Maton f10 folk guitar

I have a Maton f10. possibly 1970.
Please how much?

Re: Maton f10 folk guitar

i have an f10 as well. i have the same prob as you , if you do get a valuation could you let me know please, thanks

Re: Maton f10 folk guitar

From what I have heard the custom made f-10s can be purchased anywhere between $2000 and $15000 (aus) depending on the condition of the guitar and your skill at haggling, although really with the rarity and quality of these guitars I'd personally hold onto it if you have any intention of playing guitar in the future.
