❌SOLD❌ Maton FG100 Steel String Guitar, 1986

❌SOLD❌ Maton FG100 Steel String Guitar, 1986

Here is another rarity for North America – a Maton FG100 /6, built in Victoria, Australia during July of 1986. It is one of the last, if not the last, built when this model was discontinued in 1986. It also has a secondary label from its original seller – Ivor Mairants Musicentre in the London’s West End! Maton guitars are not commonly distributed in North America. One of the best known Maton artists is the great Tommy Emmanuel, and we’re very happy to link to a video of him using a Maton – though not this model.

❌SOLD❌  Avalon Ard Ri A3 330 Walnut Jumbo Guitar, 2016

Built in Newtownards, Northern Ireland, the Avalon Ard Ri A3 330 shows the influence of the company’s history with George Lowden, but also new in-house designs.

The original Lowden company was on the verge of folding in 1988 due to weak demand for acoustic guitars, a situation pressuring many builders at the time.

❌SOLD❌ Jack Spira Cittern Australian Blackwood, 2005

❌SOLD❌  Jack Spira Cittern Australian Blackwood, 2005

This is unusual for us to see – a Jack Spira Cittern of Australian Blackwood, built during 2005 at Spira’s shop in Boolarra, east of Melbourne. Jack Spira has been building for over 30 years, focusing on steel string guitars in regular, tenor and baritone forms, plus Irish Bouzoukis, Citterns, and Octave Mandolins. He also does repair and custom work, in particular engraved inlays. His work is highly regarded, and popular enough that few make it to the used market in Canada.
