Maton Guitars

The J.R. Signature



The J.R. Signature IMAGE GALLERY

The J.R. Signature model is the next chapter of a relationship that stretches back almost 15 years.

We are proud to announce the release of the Joe Robinson Signature Model Guitar.

One of the most inspiring players and singer/songwriters in the industry today, 29-year-old Australian native Joe Robinson has always been demanding of his instruments, and has been incredibly particular about the specifications. The J.R. Signature Model features Tasmanian Myrtle back and sides with a spruce top, jumbo frets, an ultra-playable neck, and the lightest satin finish possible.

“I’ve been playing Maton guitars since I was 14 years old," Robinson said. “They really are a huge part of my sound, and it means a lot that the relationship has moved to this level. I am so proud of this signature guitar. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. The sound, feel and build quality are impeccable. I am so happy this guitar is now out in the world for others to enjoy.“

The J.R. Signature will be available in the U.S.A from December 1st, 2020. Launches in Australia, Europe and Asia to follow early 2021.
