The Amazonian

The soul and sound of The Amazon

AmazonianHero.jpg AmazonianDetail.jpg

Timber that comes mostly from Central and South America goes into Maton Custom Shop’s carefully honed construction of The Amazonian guitar giving it a rare and exotic look. Brazilian Rosewood is selected for its back and sides, while the neck is made from the dense hardwood, Honduras Mahogany. German Spruce is renown for its tone and is used for The Amazonian’s soundboard where it creates a clear, strong sound.


All of these timbers (whilst being the traditional tone woods of choice) are now in short supply, making this guitar a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear these classic tone woods in combination. This is one of the most responsive guitars ever produced by Maton and would suit an expressive fingerpicking stylist down to the ground.


Attention to detail is reflected in the smooth finish and presentation of this guitar.
