Maton Musical Instruments Company
Maton Musical Instruments Company is a 100% family owned Australian company based in Melbourne and best known for its handmade Maton Guitar range.
The Maton name is a derivative of the words 'May' and 'Tone'.
Bill May opened Australia's first major guitar making facility in Canterbury in 1949. More than 300 different models were created at the Canterbury factory for 40 years until it was time to upgrade to a more modern and spacious facility in Bayswater in 1989. After 12 years at the Bayswater factory it relocated to an even larger facility in Box Hill.
The success of this Australian icon is largely due to the inspiration and creativity Bill May possessed and was able to reproduce in his instruments. Having established Maton as Australia's longest running and most successful guitar manufacturer, and pioneering the use of many Australian wood species in guitar construction, Bill May is regarded by many Australian luthiers as the founding father of their industry.
