PRODUCT INFORMATION

Bill May began producing guitars in 1946. Always based in Melbourne the company now employs over 70 staff and continues to produce a high quality Australian product that is not only sold in Australia but many are exported all over the world. Using Australian timbers such as Bunya, Victorian Blackwood, Queensland Maple, Queensland Walnut and its own pickups Maton certainly standout from the rest. A true Australian icon.

Maton SRS Series SRS808C Acoustic Electric Guitar

The NEW Maton SRS808c incorporates solid Blackwood back and sides, a Western Red Cedar top and a soft cutaway. The SRS 808c is an absolutely beautiful little guitar and combines the warm, full tones of Blackwood with the top end sparkle of Cedar.

A forward shifting of the X braces and the shifting of scallop peaks to nodal points around the soundboard help to enhance the vibration of the top. The shifting of the X braces also allowed the inclusion of a second, parallel tone bar which allows the scalloping of both tone bars, and spreads the load while reducing mass.

Adjusted bracing heights as well as a locked15 foot radius for the arch of the back, gave us the plate resonance separation we were looking for between top and back.

We now have the full, open, lower frequency response we were looking for as well as a crisp, well defined treble response.

The new 808 series sounds a whole lot bigger than a small bodied guitar should. We were hoping the end of this journey would produce a guitar that amazes the player at first strum, then continues to impress as each aspect of the sound of the guitar meets and surpasses the player’s expectation.
