Maton 75th Anniversary Diamond Edition
When Maton Guitars top Custom Shop team set out to design a 75th Anniversary model you just know the results are going to be something special. This gorgeous guitar has "AAA" Grade Sitka Spruce in its top with some very carefully selected Figured Blackwood in its back and sides. It comes with the ever popular AP5 Pro pickup and has been lavished with a more individual selection of only the finest woods and build specifications. This is one to excite collectors and players and is sure to receive a lot of attention now and over the years to come. We especially like the Gloss Nashville Sunburst finish and attention to detail.
Read on to hear a bit about the story behind this extraordinary guitar - To celebrate 75 years of continuous guitar production in Melbourne, Australia we decided to produce a guitar that showcased the best design and construction we could bring to a guitar, as well as to celebrate the tonewoods we love and cherish. We’ve produced a number of excellent celebratory guitars recently, particularly the 70th anniversary models and the Vera May centenary model, so we wanted this one to really stand out (by the way Vera just celebrated her 101st birthday and is still going strong…).
In recent years we have explored new shapes, materials and specifications through research and development in conjunction with the Maton Custom Shop and the passion and drive of Custom Shop luthier, Andy Allen. Many of our recent production models have benefitted from that work. We wanted this 75th Anniversary model to showcase all of this work.
