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, nylon string guitar

Hi, has anyone got one of these for sale please?

Maton C30 price.

How much do you reckon it's worth? I have a C30 original I bought in 1967. I had $500+ upgrade work done on it by a Sydney luthier. New keys, refret, repair to the fingernail dings in the fretboard, action adjustment. Nothing done to the few scratchers and small dings here and there. Would have diminished it's character. Has been played to death. Great tone. Just interested in the value of what I have. Have original Stamford made guitar case but store guitar in a new case purchased last year. Bought from Laurie Marvin's guitar shop Hurstville in 1967. My second guitar. Chopped first one up for firewood. Bought that one at Palings at Christmas in 1965 for $19. It was a real el cheapo steel string finger slicer. Couldn't play it without going to hospital afterwards.

Hi is anyone interested in a Maton C30 Serial number 282. It is well played so I am open to offers, but dont be ridiculous. Peter 0437882916

Maton C30

I am interested! Can you send photos and price expectation? This model was my first guitar, I bought it from a guy off Trading Post for $30, saved like mad to get it, and loved the sound.

Maton K10

Hi all,

An older relative has a Maton K10 that he purchased around 1960. He's kept it well but doesn't need it any longer.

Does anyone know how much it would sell for? And if so, the best place to sell it?



Maton 1991 acoustic electric wildcat

I have a black maton WSG/6 - Wildcat Acoustic electric 6 String. It has a moulded back and there are apparently only 78 made. Does anyone know anything about this guitar at all or how much it might be worth. Serial number says 066 (1191)
Any info would be great thanks.

Maton MS524 or MS500 manual/pick up select explanation

Was after some sort of formal diagram explaining how the pickups operate as I've given my daughter a guitar and want her to fully understand what does what. Haven't come across any leaflet/release from Maton themselves and have searched high and low online. Cheers

Maton Baroque bass c.1973 for sale

Based in Melbourne. May sell if the price is right.

Maton Colonial 1977 - Selling - Valuer where/how can find one?

Anyone with any further info on this guitar? Seems rare, haven't found another searching online.

It has numbers and all but appears a batch of files hiding in Maton so finding hard to get all specs

Beautiful sound, everyone who hears or plays it comments so. Lovely neck, fits my smaller female hand perfectly, not too wide across fretboard or neck too chunky, love it, but health one reason for letting go!

Anyway if anyone can let me know of guitar valuer or the lie, please help. I'm south of Newcastle, but anywhere is fine.


Maton Folk 150 12 string

I have just re-strung my Maton Folk 150 12 string guitar and the action is as good as ever.

The serial number is 237 so looks quite rare.
It is for sale if anyone would like to see some photo's

Many thanks

Maton C-15 for sale (could be 1974 date)

I have a Maton C-15 for sale. Serial no. 131 out of 352 manufactured, so probably one of those made in 1974. (The Maton site doesn't divide them by year.)

Don't be put off by the price - it's an attention-grabbing device.

It's not in great condition - ass a young backpacker, I took it around the world with me in 1979/80 - but I can't find evidence that one has been sold before.

Anyone know of a Left Handed Maton ElToro for sale?

Maton Starline

Hi. I have a Maton Starline EG90 in very good condition. It plays beautifully for such an old treasure. I did see an earlier post that they were worth around $1500. Is this correct. I have researched through the Maton Archives that it was manufactured in 1962 and 44 of them were made. Is this an acurate valuation? They were quite an expensive guitar in their day and given the new model is around 8 grand I would have thought that they were worth a lot more. Thanks. Dean

Maton C50

Hello fellow aficionados.

I have a 1972 Maton C50. I have played it all over the place. The tuners were replaced 25 years ago with gold plated Grovers. There is a slight bridge repair which was done in the Kinman factory years ago. It is in really good condition but as I have played it often and in many pubs and bbqs it has "patina". Genuine patina, not put on by an angle grinder and sandpaper. Does anyone have an idea of the value? It rings like a bell.
