‘MADE IN AUSTRALIA – MY MATON COLLECTION’
A guitar collector’s journey covering instruments by Australian guitar maker Maton, representing every vintage and collectible model made. Large format, hard cover, full colour photography, historic notes and design information, detailing the unique and versatile instruments to come out of the workshops of this home grown icon.
From the first guitars made in 1946 to the first guitar that rolled off the current production line at Box Hill in 2003, and onwards to the present.
The book contains numerous custom, prototype and employee guitars, plus many serial number one examples, including the sensational GA.1 that pre-dates factory ledgers. Rare instruments like the first electric, the only Big Ben guitar in existence and an El Toro like nothing else, with comprehensive sections on the Fyrbyrd, the Mastersound and the Holy Grail of Maton guitars, the Starline.
The first reference book of its type ever written; it is a must have for collectors, those who own a Maton and anyone with an affinity for vintage guitars.
Made in Australia is exactly that. A book on Australian guitars, meticulously collected over many years, published by an Australian and printed in Australia.
