  1. just a little update, Maton are planning on releasing their new basses late this year, so are Cole hints on what the models are going to be yet, acoustic, electric i dunno.

    but just to annoy, heres a maton bass i played a while ago (only 63 made :eek: )....was brilliant...i just asked to see how much for a custom made replica, cos i doubt ill ever find another 'origional' one
    made in 83, rock maple neck, ebony fingerboard, Sassafras body

    That's a JB4. Great bass, not too hard to find second hand in Australia or NZ. The fretless version is killer.

    Interesting. Bloody Ugly.

    Are they releasing acoustic basses?
  4. It's about time that Maton and CC start making basses.

    I've checked out Cole Clark's acoustic guitars and they are amazing. A very unique construction.

    And, of course, you could never go wrong (at least sound-wise) with a Maton.

    Image026.jpg Sorry to dissapoint but this is actually an MGB4 Fretless

    Its the big brother to the JB4 Fretless both of which i own.

    Only got my MGB last week actually and its never been played!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Will Post a pic when i take a couple.

    The neck on the MGB is exquisite made of rock maple and ebony.
    The body is a neck through design with sassaphras on each side of the neck and a white maple top.

  7. Heath, if you ever travel to QLD, come to Toowoomba, the main music store here has the walls covered in old and new'ish Maton guitars and basses. Some really interesting stuff in there.

    I like the giant flying V acoustic and teh 10foot tall strat :bassist:
