Maton Acoustic Guitars

"I feel it is the right way of life for a man to come and work and to give his ability to a job which means something to him and something to the end user.” Bill May.

The Spirit of Bill May, the soul of Maton Guitars.

 

From a small backyard workshop, Maton Guitars has grown into a truly great Australian success story.  Currently, Maton employs more than 60 people and remains 100 percent family owned and operated.

Firmly established now as Australia’s favourite and most successful guitar, Maton is gaining acceptance on the world stage as an instrument of the highest quality.  It is following Bill May’s vision of making handcrafted guitars at an affordable price. His philosophy still rings true today: “If you make a good guitar, the right guitar, people will want it.”

Bill May's philosophy meant that “precision in work is very important. Individuals are important – I must have them. I feel it is the right way of life for a man to come and work and to give his ability to a job which means something to him and something to the end user.”  Bill May.

Bill’s enthusiasm proved infectious and lives on today in current staff members who embrace the high standards of quality on which Maton was founded. Bill was particularly interested in experimenting with Australian timbers and these principles continue today with impressive results.

Beloved and respected entertainers in Australia such as Tommy Emmanuel (who bought his first Maton, an MS500 model in 1959), John Williamson, The Finn Brothers, Paul Kelly, The Seekers, George Golla and Colin Hay have been seen on stage and television playing a Maton and the company’s turnover expanded. “I have spent my whole life playing music to people in Australia and I love playing an Australian-made guitar – the Maton,” said Tommy Emmanuel.

International performers such as John Fogerty from Creedence Clearwater and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and even the late Beatle George Harrison have played a part in spreading the word about Maton guitars. helping lift Maton’s reputation and international profile.
