Maton MS2000 – complete conversion

It’s not every day we get the opportunity to completely transform a guitar – so when the owner of this lovely Maton Mastersound came into using saying just that, we didn’t know what to think!

The guitar was already beautiful in its own right, but the owner had tried countless pickup changes, pot values, bridge and tailpiece combinations and was never satisfied with its tone. He loved the everything else about the guitar, the neck, the weight, the balance, body shape, how it felt – all that was left was to nail the sound.

He knew that it just needed to somehow change – so after discussing in depth some different options, we put to him an idea we had had been sitting on for a rainy day. Luckily he loved it and this is how we went about creating it!
