Maton 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.

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

<div class="cmt-sbj">I'm sure the guitars listed</div><div class='author-st'>Anonymous</div>

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 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?

Thanks,

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.

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.

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

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.

<div class="cmt-sbj">Maton DC545</div><div class='author-st'>Mike</div>

Hi, Good to see a site devoted to Tommy Emmanuel’s favourite acoustic. My first Maton was an 1958 Maton Supreme. After a visit to a friend who had just spray painted his fridge ‘positano yellow’ and was eager to unleash his new found creative talent, the Maton was masked up and sprayed in the U.S. stars and stripes. Came out quite well but the days of the Maton’s status as a mint collectible were over. My next Maton, which I bought new and still own, is a mint condition 1964 DC 545 ‘crab claw’ double cutaway. The serial number is 231. This seems like a low number and it would be interesting to know how many were made. The guitar still has the music store’s sticker on the back of the head. (Musgroves.) With the exception of a missing Maton nameplate from the case, (probably ended up on the floor of some dive where we used to play,) everything is intact and completely original.

<div class="cmt-sbj">Maton C45 advice</div><div class='author-st'>Brian</div>

I brought this guitar second hand from Palings in about 1967 & for most of those years the case has not been opened. I used it for lessons over a couple of years early on and then again more recently. The basic condition is good with no obvious areas of wear due to use (other than some scuffing from the plectrum). There are two small chips on the soundboard and some light scratches on the sides. The top coast is obviously aging. The hard case was made by Stammfords at Chatswood & may be older than the guitar, but is in useable, but now poor condition. It’s time for me to consider my options as I will not use it again. Any advice appreciated (as to value, methods for disposal).

I have a top of the line, cedar top, ebony fretboard Maton C50 classical guitar (1976) in excellent condition in original case.
Also a Maton Sapphire 3 pickup 303/6 (268) in very good to excellent for age condition. Great neck and frets…some fingerboard wear at the ‘camp-fire’ chords end. The original machine heads were upgraded to top quality models when the guitar was young. The guitar had a minor finish flaw near the bottom f-hole which was remedied by the Maton factory under warranty by fitting a custom-made, possibly unique, scratch-plate over the volume and tone controls.
The original owner had a friend who had a Sapphire with a fixed tail-piece, which he thought had better sustain, so he had professionally fitted a fixed tail piece. Later, he had it converted back to original, with the result that the 2 gold-finished tailpiece studs are visible under the original M trapeze tail-piece. The sun-burned finish has some age-related, visible up close, crazing on the front. The guitar is without the original case.
I’d greatly appreciate it if any knowledgeable person could give me some idea of the worth of each guitar. I can post pics if desired.

I have a C45 which I bought from the Maton outlet at North Melbourne sometime in 1970. I was so smart that I saved $25 by not buying a case. Hmm.
This poor old instrument has withstood fourty three years of hard living but never have I felt the urge to sell or throw it onto the nearest tip. The finish is worn; it now shows its hard life, but, the neck is straight, the action is as good as the day it was bought, the intonation is perfect, the frets are still in top condition.
The tone is superb.
OK, there is a small split (about one inch long) on the sounding board. A piffling complaint.
After recently spending $140 on sprucing this instrument up (as much as possible) and buying a ninety dollar case, I feel a compelling urge to tell somebody who may understand the implications inherent in owning such a good and faithful friend: I will not sell it.
However, I am curious as to whether someone can indicate a reasonable value.
I’ve also accumulated a Maton EA80C – beautiful – four Fender guitars and four good amps.
Enough! Is there anyone around out there who just wants to talk (or crow) about their good fortune in having accumulated a good stable of instruments? I’ll answer any correspondence from anyone who’s not an obvious nut.

Hey All,

I have this old Maton Kid Capitol fair condition, I’ve had it sitting around for about 5 years and a mate of mine owned it before, anyone know possibly what it would be worth?

Cheers
