1953 Maton Premier EG 45A – Part 1

9 February 2016

This was a special one. It isn’t every day that a customer brings in a piece of Australian history – but that is exactly what happened in this case.

The guitar had been through the wars and sat in a hot roof for decades out of sight and out of mind. Although it did not look a like it at the time, this Maton Premier is a very important piece of Australian guitar history, being one of the earliest models in the Maton lineage.

The guitar belonged our clients father, and wanted nothing more than to have it fully restored back to how she remembered it as a little girl. So we happily obliged

And thus began our biggest restoration to date.. ENJOY!
