Maton Custom Shop WA May Traditional Acoustic Electric Guitar

Maton Custom Shop WA May Traditional Acoustic Electric Guitar

The Maton WA May Custom Shop was developed and designed as a tribute to the late Maton founder – 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. The 000 or “Traditional” shape that this incarnation takes on is arguably it’s most classical and stylistic form to date.

Bill May's signature 3-layered deco-style headstock sits atop this model proudly as it did on Bill's very first Maton guitar. The WA May Features a Solid Spruce Top with highly-figured Fiddleback Blackwood back and sides. A True Trailblazers guitar.
