“I’ve been playing Maton guitars since I was 14 years old," Robinson said. “They really are a huge part of my sound, and it means a lot that the relationship has moved to this level. I am so proud of this signature guitar. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. The sound, feel and build quality are impeccable. I am so happy this guitar is now out in the world for others to enjoy."
The Tasmanian Myrtle back & sides give this Maton a powerful mid-range response with a speedy note attack & warm low end balance. The Mahogany neck makes for a sturdy, ultra comfortable profile that helps hold and sustain notes longer with clarity & fullness. The Jumbo stainless steel fretwire is something new for Maton players, "the frets are wider than a Martin fret & taller than a Gibson fret" - JR. Joe credits Joe Glaser in Nashville TN. as the reason he changed out his original frets for the jumbos.
