Description

Bill May founded Maton in 1946. Maton’s name is derived from the words “May” and “Tone”. Until the mid-1930s Australian industrial manufacturing guitars were virtually non-existent. Good quality guitars were hard to find and at this time the best guitars were in the United States. Melbourne-born jazz musician, teacher and luthier Bill May decided to change all that. During the early 1940s Bill established a custom guitar manufacturing and repair company called “Maton Violin Making and Repairs”. In March 1946, Bill and his brother Reg launched Maton Corporate Musical Instruments, the opening of Australia’s first major violin maker based in Canterbury, Melbourne, in 1949. Maton now has a new modern facility in the Melbourne suburb. Maton is still a 100% family business, operated by Linda and Neville Kitchen (daughter and son-in-law of Bill May). Maton has been established in Australia for a long time and is a pioneer in the use of many Australian woods, species used in guitar construction, Bill May is considered the founding father of Australian luthiers. Bill May was recently recognized at the Australian Music Association Awards where he posthumously received the highest honor before being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
