Maton Guitars

Maton Guitars have made a huge impact at Midwood Guitar Studio and are our best selling acoustic guitars.


Maton in many ways, is Australia’s Martin. Bill May created Maton in 1946 and it remains family owned and operated. Their instruments are quite distinct from their American counterparts, however, typically sounding drier and more lively. Maton largely uses native tone-woods that offer distinct and exotic flavors. Maton's staggeringly precise, proprietary pickup system is part of the package, too.

A Maton guitar is like a finely tuned drum plugged into a JCM800. They bring the thunder.
