    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!

    Friend of mine has Maton; as they're extremely rare over here, it's the only I've ever seen inperson, let alone played - but I sure do like it!

    Haha! I suppose I should butcher my way through some Emanuel licks. That being said, I usually play SGs and I've never played any AC/DC. Blasphemy!

    I would put a Maton above a Martin anyday, especially plugged in.
