The Maton Custom Shop W.A May was developed and designed as a tribute to the late Maton founded, Bill May. You don’t have to look very far to see many of the ideas and concepts that were close to the heart of Maton’s founder in this beautiful Custom Shop model. Bills' signature 3 layered deco style headstock sits atop this model proudly as it did on Bills' very first Maton guitar (still in the Maton Museum 70 years on). The WA May Features a Solid Spruce Top with highly figured Fiddleback Blackwood back and sides. A stunning and so often favoured combination of timber that is truly symbolic of Maton’s Australian heritage.
The Maton WA May is a wonderful tribute to an iconic Australian luthier, blending new and old to create a stunning heirloom instrument with a warm, rich, deep and complex tone that will only improve with age. It comes equipped with Maton's unbeatable AP5 Pro pickup system for plugged-in performance, and ships in a Maton-branded Hiscox flight case.
