THE MATON CASE: MADE FOR MATON

The Maton Case is the result of almost three years of research and development, testing and refinement. Engaging the services of world-class industrial design studio Cobalt Design, Maton set out to create a case that goes far beyond what has become accepted as standard in today's market.

Every detail has been considered, every component tested, to ensure the best performance possible from a guitar case.

The Maton Case is comprised of 48 individual parts, each of them playing a vital role in the overall performance. 

While the outer shell retains the same compact and sleek dimensions across the range, the internal components are engineered to perfectly accommodate each body shape, no matter which Maton Guitar you own.

Cases that fit Maton 808 and Dreadnought Models will be available from Monday the 19th of December 2016. Jumbo, traditional and Electric variants will follow early 2017. 

Please note when upgrading:  Maton's standard Dreadnought shape was refined circa 1995 and guitars created before this date may not fit the Maton Case.

 Design Features.

Internal Soft lIning designed specifically to fit your Maton, securing guitar at the strongest points of the upper and lower bout. Soft Cushion Buffer Zones 

Ridges near the head of the guitar case create Cross-sectional strength as well as Sliding rails for general use. 

Around the Perimeter of the lid and the base,  there is a bevelled chamfered edge to prevent it from catching on different surfaces.

Side stays near the hinge protect the hinges from general wear and tear but also allow the case to stand stable on the side.

Hinges are flush with the case surface, minimising the potential for damage.

Handle Positioned directly above the centre of gravity to make it easier to carry

Latches are positioned away from high-risk areas that are closest to the other shell, upper and lower bout, the strap nut 

3 Oversize latches, much more durable and less prone to misalignment.
