The Maton BB1200 was first produced in 1958 as a response to a growing musical trend called rock ‘n’ roll, the Mastersounds soon found their way into the hands of local and international musicians (most notably, George Harrison, the Kinks and our own Emmanuel brothers).
Maton's BB1200 combines a new look with a classic tone. A Queensland Maple body, capped with either Rock Maple or Victorian Blackwood, along with a Rock Maple neck gives the BB1200 maximum sustain, producing a beautifully warm and rounded tone with enough bite to give ensuring the BB1200 holds its own on any stage, any time.
The strings are anchored to a Tonepros nickel stop tailpiece and bridge set, chosen for both their stability and durability. The BB1200 comes with Maton JHB & JHN pickups with Alnico 8 magnets, developed specifically for the BB1200. Each pickup can be split to single coil mode, drastically increasing the number of sounds on offer.
The combination pickup setting predictably presents the best of both worlds: the fullness and vocal quality of the neck pickup, with the top-end sweetness of the bridge one.
Aside from being a very attractive guitar to look at, the BB1200 plays great and sounds exceptional. The guitar is a time machine with a modern attitude!!
This instrument is in Excellent Condition with only some light surface scratches on the top and back of the guitar.
Includes Hardshell Case.
