NGD - Maton Mastersound

I saw this appear on our regional Buy/Swap/Sell music group the other day for $500. Due to recent events requiring money, I was a bit uncertain and forgot about it for a day until one of my Church friends tagged me in the post (her husband has a Mastersound too and it's amazing). So I talked to the guy and today I picked up a secondhand Maton Mastersound (with hardcase for $500)!



He even restrung it for me and told me the pots needed cleaning (which is evident) but that's alright, I'll get to that later.

Having played my friend's Mastersound, I was aware that they sounded great and felt great in my hands, so I knew what I was in for.

These are Australian made guitars and they generally start at about $1000 AUD. So one of these with a hardcase for $500 I just couldn't pass up. And I'm really glad I didn't.

I'm rambling now. But gosh darn this guitar rocks! I get a nice wide range of tones out of it and the action is set nice and low so I barely have to press on it!

Do you mean on the pickup selector? It's just part of it, it's not a separate knob. Australians, am I right?

I concur, with the exception of an AOG youth pastor's - no matter what, that thing always went out of tune really quick and it sounded terrible. Felt terrible to play as well.
