MS500 HC


As you’d expect from its origins in the late ’50s, the MS500/HC exudes a retro vibe. Everything from the pickups and pickguard to the headstock with the original logo from 1946 is a nostalgic celebration of Matons heritage.

A semi hollow-body guitar based on the MS500, the MS500/HC has a Queensland maple bolt-on neck with a rosewood fingerboard and a Queensland maple body with a Blackwood or Rock Maple tone cap. The pickups are Maton’s own design—a coil-tapped MVB1 in the bridge position and an MVS1 neck unit that has alnico magnets, a vintage styled 3 way chrome Rotary Selector Switch with settings of Cool, Mid-Way and Hi-Fi opens up the tonal possibilities.  Available in Wine Red Sunburst, and Natural finish. Also available as a twelve string
