1953 Maton Premier EG 45A – Part 3

12 February 2016

After being dismantled, re-built, given a new neck and full refinish it was finally time to complete the old Maton. By now the restoration had been going on for many months, and it was almost sad to see the project coming to an end!

There was still a fair amount of work to be done though. As most of the original parts were missing, many had to be sourced and replaced as closely to the originals as possible. Unfortunately this was not possible for several of the parts, as they were unique to these instruments and are no longer manufactured – so we had to do some replicating of our own!

Enjoy the final chapter!
