Maton Custom Shop guitars are hand-built by master luthier Andy Allen in his personal workshop within the Maton factory in Melbourne, using a combination of premium and rare timbers, elegant appointments and stunning craftsmanship to create playable works of art. Our latest Maton Custom Shop arrival is this exceptional deep-body Traditional guitar, designed from the ground up by Andy Allen himself.
The centrepiece of this guitar is the glorious AAA Torrefied Sitka Spruce top. Torrefication is a process of artificially aging that accelerates the natural curing of timber, for a guitar that sounds like a well-worn guitar after a few decades of regular playing. Maton have paired this with an exceptional set of Spalted Blackwood, with striking sap and spalt markings. The figured Blackwood is also used in the binding, neck and headstock inlay, along with tasteful herringbone purfling and rosette and ebony fretboard dots. The fretboard and bridge are made of subtly grained Pau Ferro, with a genuine bone nut and saddle.
The sound is all-enveloping, lush and deep - there's incredible bass for a small-bodied guitar. The signature Maton presence and clarity is there, with shimmering overtones and plenty of natural reverb. The guitar is factory-fitted with Maton's AP5 Pro pickup system. These latest models are some of the best-sounding Maton Custom Shop guitars we've ever heard - taking Maton's signature tone to new levels, with extraordinary sustain, resonance and clarity. Includes Hiscox flight case.
