Re: Maton Firebirds

Hey dude I have one too! Yayness! Haha. It was my dad's when he was like 20. I have no idea where he got it from he's dead so that kinda stopped me asking when I finally took an interest haha. Email me if you want,a.touch.of.frost@gmail.com
I've also been looking for a bit of info on them and from the looks of it there's jack shit. Would be good to talk to someone who's dealing with them too. They're freakin old man haha.
Anyways, catch ya later.
If I don't hear from you good luck with it.

a little.. I have what I have bee ntold is a 1966 maton firebyrd..which I have had since 1990 - its a great guitar, with a crazy heavy sound - and a look reminiscent of a sixties burns guitar - I am keen to glean a little more on the history of this guitar - I have seen a later model a seventies one as used by nigel regan from the NZ band Head Like a Hole..I also know that one was used in the video for NZ band striaght jacket fits song 'cat inna can' which was shot in the sydney rail yards aboout 1994...now my guitar is residing in london...past owners of this one allegdedly are the aus grouip sky hooks.. ut dont qoute me on that

It's a Maton Fyrbyrd

I bought one when I was 19 and back then it was nearly as old as I was. I still have it will never sell it. I play a Fender more these days but still drag it out on occasions. If you want to know a little more get on the Maton site as it has a bit on the older models. With the effects pedals these days it's hard to tell the sound of one guitar to another. But the long neck on the Maton makes it easy to push the strings around. Whis is sort of handy as the Bigsby tremelo arm is pretty bad to try and keep on tune. Other than that a beautiful guitar and worth keeping. I,m sorry I changed the bridge just after I bought it because other than that it's pretty original. Have fun with your and hopefully you can hand it down to you kids.
Cheers
Mike
