Re: maton fyrbyrd anyone?

: Hellon there,
I have a 12 string Maton Firebird for sale. it is number 162 out of 180 made. I have had it for over 30 years. It plays perfectly well as a 12 or 6 string guitar. It is completley original and in good condition and has a Bigsby tremelo. The only reason that I am willing to part with it is because I want to buy a Strat for my son.

: Cheers

Hi David. I had a six string as a teenager. Do you still have it for sale?

Re: maton fyrbyrd anyone?

Hi

I have one too-its no 191, so I dont know about the 180 made-I have the original nunbered tag, perhaps they missed a few numbers.Its a fyrebyrd 1220, yes , with a Bisby tremelo-which I have to say is one of the dumbest ideas you'd ever see on a gutar -I took the spring out after a week , I think.Mine's red/gold, just like you know who's.

Maton Fyrbird

I have a white Maton Fyrbird complete with original case in good working order, unfortunately someone has painted white on white and the paint has reacted causing cracks in the paint, which could be part of it's Mojo.
The number on the guitar at the back of the headstock is J10 so I suspect it is one of the first made.
I am considering selling it but am unsure of what it is worth
Plays great by the way
Cheers

Re: maton fyrbyrd anyone?

: Hi if you have 191 it was the 91st one made --serial numbers for the 1220 started at 100 with 101 being the first and there was only 120 made not 180-- 80 the first year and 40 the next --I have 108 the 8th one made --serial numbers would have ran to 220
: I have one too-its no 191, so I dont know about the 180 made-I have the original nunbered tag, perhaps they missed a few numbers.Its a fyrebyrd 1220, yes , with a Bisby tremelo-which I have to say is one of the dumbest ideas you'd ever see on a gutar -I took the spring out after a week , I think.Mine's red/gold, just like you know who's.

Re: Maton Fyrbyrd 12 String

i have a mid 60's solid body 12 string that has sat idle for many years now that i am now prepared to sell.

not in original condition, retro fitted dimarzios,
neck repair in Sydney 1969, sunburst body - like the one currently on the grouse site. original parts aavailable with the exception of the scratchplate which was the subject/victim of 'improvement - change'. Iwas going to get a new custom s/plate and fit 3 seymours - the hb's which split to a p90 or strat type blade but i know that it would still not be used as i did a 12 string conversion on a strat and that fits the bill. enquiries welcome
pkennedy@y7mail.com . all questions answered truthfully.

it sits in the UK and i am flying to the UK in april and can bring back to Perth. in its original case - unfortunately with my name on it.

it does have a serial number on it -reasonably it is 190 ish

Re: maton fyrbyrd anyone?

Tim,

I agree with your comments on the bigsby temelo on a 12 string. One tug and every string is out of tune. I Put in a brass piece instead of the spring and it is very stable and plays very well. I like the wide fretboard. It sounds like the Burns 12 string used on several Beatles tracks from the late 60's. It is a good guitar but I don't use it much and need the money to buy a more usable guitar for my son who loves heavy metal.
