THE MINI MATON
The Mini Series of guitars have been on a steady upward rise since their inception all most eight years ago. Regardless of trends, the popularity of the minis has continued to grow – a remarkable achievement!
Minis take in a range of tonewoods including Solid Victorian and Solid Queensland Maple editions
The EMD 6 is an incredibly popular model and was developed in conjunction with Australian artist Diesel, an enormously successful local singer/songwriter. In fact, the Mini range was actually developed and grown thanks to his input. A great live instrument that can really be pushed to the limit of volume and rock and roll rowdiness, whilst maintaining its control and balance. These guitars are played in Australian Music venues daily!
The new Mini-Maton EM6 is a fresh look at the very successful EML6.
Everything that was great about the EML6 is to be found on the EM. Solid Qld Maple back and sides have replaced the old laminated Qld Maple. This brings a fuller, richer tone which will improve even further over time as the wood learns to vibrate to its full potential.
Add to this the new Double X Bracing now found across the entire Mini range as well as Maton’s “Original” AP5 pickup system and you have a real winning combination.
Greater tone, improved structural integrity and a perfectly matched pickup system….
