I mainly play punk/hardcore and heavier stuff so have never really played much acoustic. One of the guys I play suggested we start playing pub gigs so I figured it was time for a nice acoustic guitar. He's a funny guy and likes most of the same music as me, but our gear is polar opposite. He has a few Martin acoustics and give me a spiel about how much better they are than Matons, so I made a point of playing a Maton as odds-on I would like them! I went to Acoustic Centre in South Melbourne and played a bunch of Martins, Taylors, Yamahas, Cole Clarks and Matons. This was the one for me by a mile. Really just a great, balanced strong sound, neck is great, finish is fantastic. I really like the use of all native timber and I like to support Australian made when possible. I just spent all afternoon playing some Bob Seger, man this thing is good!
