 Product Description

Maton Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought Custom Shop Guitar 

PH 07 55962588

This custom shop Brazilian Rosewood Maton is a one off guitar built for one of our lucky customers at Guitar World Australia. Will it be you? All timbers have been hand selected by Andy Allen the head of Maton's custom shop. The top is built from top grade European Spruce. The back and sides are built from Brazilian Rosewood, one of the rarest timbers in the world. Universally renowned amongst luthiers and guitar players for its superb tonal quality and unique beauty, Brazilian Rosewood, (scientific name Dalbergia Nigra), has unfortunately suffered from that very renown, and it became an endangered species decades ago. Since 1991 it has been protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Not only are the back and sides Brazilian Rosewood but the fingerboard is also made from Brazilian Rosewood.  This makes this guitar a true collectors instrument that is sure to increase in desirebility over the years to come as Brazilian Rosewood becomes harder and harder to find. The attention to detail on this guitar is truly outstanding, every part has been carefully chosen, from the woods to the binding 

All timbers selected for Custom Shop guitars are hand picked from Maton’s vast stocks and then thoroughly checked for structural integrity. This ensures that only top quality materials find their way into a Custom Shop guitar. The timber’s visual appeal and tonal quality also form an important part of the selection process. All the chosen components are then individually ‘voiced’ to ensure they can produce maximum acoustic performance. This is done by ‘tap testing’ and flexing each piece to determine maximum strength and minimum weight, the recipe for great tone. It is a process that requires deep experience and construction knowledge and can only be done by an extremely skilled craftsman.

 As the head of Maton’s Custom Shop,  Andy Allen has the ability to build a guitar that will produce the sound that the customer has ordered and wants to hear. The construction of a Custom Shop guitar is performed by a single, skilled luthier and this ensures every detail mirrors precisely the customer’s requirements. It also ensures the look as well as the sound matches the buyer’s dream. Each operation is done by hand, the way Maton Guitars have been built since 1946, with no deadline. The process will take however long is required to meet the customer’s expectations. A masterpiece cannot be rushed!
