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.

How did you go??
They only ever made 130 odd, there were to be 200. John Farnham apparently got number 1, Tommy Emanuel got number 2. I had number fifty but the neck buckled just before the twelvth fret and they replaced it free with number 63. Which I still have, come back to me on this and I'll get you a .wav file on what it sounds like. And,,,,, mine isn't mint !! But ooooh, I've got a good one !! cheers Bob Saddington.

Hey Bob,,

I have a big, lush, ringing tobacco sunburst Bicentennial that remains - outside of some small and very expensive independents - the loveliest acoustic I've ever picked up.
The thing is, I always thought that its serial number (063) made it the 63rd in the series. In full, the Serial No on the inside lable reads: 063 (489)
What do you think that means? Have we both got a 63? Please cross-post your reply to spurcell@communities.qld.gov.au, because I might never find my way back to this site. Thanks Bob,
Sean

Re: can i have a guitar

What kind of sounds is your guitar making?
If it is a humming noise, check all the ground wires and solder connections. If that doesn't solve anything, take it too an accreddited Maton repairer. Cheers!

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.
