Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I you are into Australian made quality guitars this is the book for you.
This is a wonderful and detailed historical document with excellent photographs. My compliments to the author, photographer and editor.
A much larger book than I had anticipated. Top quality pics and descriptions/histories. Well worth the money.
Awesome book. Quick delivery. Very happy with the personalised service.
This is a well set out and written book, which is almost encyclopaedic in nature. It provides a detailed chronological account of an important element of both Australian music and manufacturing. The individual story behind each item adds a lovely personal touch. The quality of the images is amazing. This is an excellent coffee table book, a reference book for would-be collectors of Maton items, a fitting testament to a great Australian success story, and a great catalogue for an important era in Australian music.
