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 Classical C.15

Hi, would anyone know the value of a lovely old Maton C.15 guitar serial no. 006 (274)? It's in excellent condition
and the intonation is perfect! I've never heard a nicer sounding nylon string guitar.... and I was wondering
what it's value would be.....
If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it,
Thanks, Craig Spy

Re: Maton Classical C.15

Re: Maton Classical C.15

Not sure if this matters now, you've probably found out already, but... the C.15/C.25 models were roughly a few hundred, from memory...

You can run a model/serial code search from www.maton.com.au

Cheers.

Charles Orr, Minneapolis guitar maker

This guy made guitars for Prince,(he used to jam in Orr's back room) Dave "Snaker" Ray and a whole host of other luminaries of the music world. Now he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth.
Anybody know anything of his whereabouts, or have any pics of a Charles Orr axe? I did a documentary film about him in the eighties, and want to do an update. Thanks for listening.....JeffH

Charles Orr -:- The Man Behind the Music

I just bought my first Orr bass at Encore Music on Lyndale Ave here in Minneapolis. It's a beautiful violin shape with a neck-through body, Shadow humbucker and piezio pickups and a sound like no other bass I've ever owned. I've been told that of the three big luthiers in Minneapolis during the 70's and 80's (O'Hagan being one of the others), Orr were the only ones that were all hand made.

I'd like to see other Orr guitars and basses. Did Chuck ever produce a catalog, or at least take photos of all the instuments he made? I suggest a memorial website be made, even a free MySpace page where collectors, fans, and family can go to learn about Mr. Orr, post pics of their Orr guitars, and share their stories about the man behind these wonderful instruments.
