NATIONAL VS-1 VILLEX SLIMLINE PICKUP
This dual-coil humbucking thinline pickup, measuring .215” thick, is designed to be affixed to the top of a guitar at the end of the fretboard. You can route the lead wire inside or outside of the guitar body. The first mounting style is to affix the pickup using the provided 3M® double-stick tape and route the wire outside of the guitar to the endpin. This mounting technique requires no modification to your instrument. The second mounting technique offers two options--run the lead wire through the soundhole inside the body, or drill a 1/8” hole underneath the pickup and run the wire internally. In either case, the lead wire is then hardwired to the provided ¼” jack that must be permanently mounted in the desired location.
This National Slimline pickup incorporates all of the best qualities of an extremely warm sounding humbucker, while still being microphonic enough to amplify the nuances of the actual resonator vibrations. You can hear the tonal differences between a Tricone and a Single-cone set up.
These pickups are very hard to get and never last long, so jump on one now while you can.
"The Music That Maton Made" Hardback book
From a small backyard workshop on the outskirts of Melbourne, Maton Guitars has grown into a truly inspiring Australian success story.
In 1946, Bill May crafted a guitar in his Melbourne garage that he wanted the world to hear and to play. In a matter of years, it was in the hands of Elvis Presley on film. Later, a Maton played the riff that defined a generation on the Rolling Stones' 'Gimme Shelter'. Today, Maton are an essential part of music culture in Australia and around the world.
This is not only a book for guitar lovers — it's an intimate family history and an essential part of Australian music history. Compiling over ten years of research, and over two years in production, this book is as well-crafted and family-owned as Maton guitars themselves.
Go behind-the-scenes to meet the artisan guitar makers. Read the stories behind the songs created with Maton guitars. And go backstage to meet the bands and musicians that have, with a Maton in hand, shaped our musical world.
Packed full of interviews with the greats — from jazz legend George Golla to guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel; from Archie Roach, and The Wiggles, to Daniel Johns, Paul Kelly, and Josh Homme, and many more ...
