Maton Guitars

The Australian EA80C



The Australian EA80C IMAGE GALLERY

The Maton Australian (EA80C) is the culmination of over 50 years of building guitars from Australian timber.

 The EA80C showcases our indigenous timber at its best. Beautiful Blackwood back and sides combine with a premium quality Blackwood neck to produce a rich, well-balanced tone. A Bunya face with a Desert Acacia fingerboard and bridge complete the timber selection. This uniquely Australian guitar sits right up there with the best the world has to offer.
