    Maton S70 - Fantastic Tone; Wonderful Guitar

    The S70: The first time I played a Maton was in the 1980's as a Uni Student. At the time I thought it was the best guitar I had played. Alas as a poor student it stayed in the shop. Moving on 40 or so years I have finally bought a Maton Acoustic. This thing is astounding. Yes it may not be their top of line model, however the tone is a thing to behold. I have had it a few weeks before writing this review. The thing I love about it is clearly its tone, plus it has great volume. When it arrived from the shop I checked it against the Maton published specs. The neck relief was out (quite a bit) which I put down to the newness of the guitar and shipping effects. (The Maton website says that relief will alter over the first month or so and need to be adjusted until it settles). So I secured a Maton truss rod adjuster and put it back into spec. The action was then as per the Maton specs. Like many guitar manufacturers they need to set action for "every player" which means it may be a little high. If considering buying this guitar the action might need adjusting to your style - not unusual for any guitar. I do not live close to the Acoustic Centre and took the risk of buying after talking with Ryan at the shop. I must say Ryan was outstanding. He took several phone calls and emails from me over a few days and was very helpful indeed. So the bottom line is the Maton S70 is a great guitar and in my opinion worth having. Is it better or worse than other Maton's ? Don't know but most likely it is just different. Is it worth considering as a good choice at this price point? Absolutely. If you are looking to buy in this price range this guitar needs to be on your short list of choices. If you have a choice of where to buy, I highly recommend the Acoustic Centre and the service provided. For reference; my background in guitars, been playing for a very long time, I own several guitars including a Maton electric, a number of other 'classic' electrics a 12 string acoustic and a semi-acoustic.

    Maton S70

    Terrific guitar, light weight feel but delivers a warm, clear sound. Appreciated the assistance given by Dan. I was trying to decide between this guitar & the S60. Dan gave me advice & information for both guitars & then left me alone to play the guitars & make a decision at my leisure. I really enjoyed that approach. Thanks

    A great guitar for the price

    If you want a serious guitar on a budget this is it. Nothing fancy, no add ones, just an honest, great sounding guitar. The neck feels fantastic, and the tone is great.

    great guitar with beautiful tone nice booming bass with a slightly sparkling high end great complex resonance can handle all acoustic styles construction is sturdy just like you would expect from an Aussie guitar fast neck with low action this guitar is worth twice the amount you pay for and blows away any guitar in the price range i am overly satisfied with this guitar
