Maton Guitars


Betty Blue
Maton’s BB1200 combines a new look with a classic tone. A Queensland Maple body, capped with either Rock Maple or Victorian Blackwood, along with a Rock Maple neck gives the BB1200 maximum sustain, producing a beautifully warm and rounded tone with enough bite to give ensuring the BB1200 holds its own on any stage, any time.

The strings are anchored to a Tonepros nickel stop tailpiece and bridge set, chosen for both their stability and durability. The BB1200 comes with Maton MBB1 and MBN1 Bad Boy pickups with Alnico 8 magnets, developed specifically for the BB1200. Each pickup can be split to single coil mode, drastically increasing the number of sounds on offer.

The high gloss finish is available in Ultra Blue, Cherry, Black, Natural, and Wine Red Sunburst.
