Maton Starline

Is there anybody out there with a Maton Starline S.A.70, S.E.90, or E.G.90? I have particular problems with mine and was wondering if anybody else had the same problems.

Can you expand on the problems? Bridge, action etc or are they more to do with output?

The necks of both my Starlines appear to be twisted when one looks at them end on from the head, and yet both sides of the fretboard are dead straight! It makes them easy to play, but surely they weren't made that way?! I thought that perhaps the fact that they are over fifty years old and have had the strings at full tension for most of their lives, that the heavy strings on one side and light on the other may have caused it. I was just wondering if other owners of these guitars have noticed the same thing.
