As the head of Maton’s Custom Shop, Andy Allen has the ability to build a guitar that will produce the sound that the customer has ordered and wants to hear. The construction of a Custom Shop guitar is performed by a single, skilled luthier and this ensures every detail mirrors precisely the customer’s requirements.
It also ensures the look as well as the sound matches the buyer’s dream. Each operation is done by hand, the way Maton Guitars have been built since 1946, with no deadline. The process will take however long is required to meet the customer’s expectations. A masterpiece cannot be rushed!
Designed as a tribute to the Maton founder, Bill May and to bring the best of Maton's heritage and their guitar making skills together, the W.A. May is a guitar for the connoisseur.
This guitar features a gorgeous fiddleback Blackwood back and side set with a blackwood neck and AAA spruce face to produce a huge sounding dreadnought guitar. Add to that the unique Custom Shop voicing and craftsmanship and you have a guitar worthy of the name W.A. May.
