Old (70s) Maton Guitars

Postby Text_Edifice » Wed Nov 17, 2021 6:17 am

I remember someone on the forum used to work for Maton - I'm after opinions on the early 70s southern stars.

I've got an option to get one, but can't play it first. I am cautious, but these things don't turn up very often.

What are the old Maton's like sound wise?

How do they record?

I've got a high end 80s Yamaha (d35 copy), a j45 and a parlour / blues box. Is the Maton going to have something different / worthwhile?

I've never worked for Maton, but I do remember that those '70s Southern Stars were very good. Very solidly built - some might argue too solidly built. It was their top of the line model which morphed into the Messiah model.The ones I played were as good as Martins.
