Maton Guitars has announced a signature acoustic guitar model for Australian singer-songwriter Joe Robinson.

Adding to the company's established Artist Signature Series, the J.R Signature features a construction of an AA-grade sitka spruce top and Tasmanian Myrtle back and sides, a mahogany neck with a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard and bridge and a scalloped Maton X bracing.

Visual touches include a Myrtle headstock veneer with a pearl Maton inlay, a herringbone rosette, a five-ply body binding and Joe Robinson's signature on the scratchplate.

Electronics come by way of a Maton AP5 PRO pickup system, which features bass, treble and volume fader-style controls, as well as mic and piezo input dials and mid and frequency knobs.

Other features include a bone nut and saddle, a Natural Satin finish, Ivory ABS bridge pins and chrome Grover Rotomatic tuning machines.

“I’ve been playing Maton guitars since I was 14 years old,” Robinson says. “They really are a huge part of my sound, and it means a lot that the relationship has moved to this level. I am so proud of this signature guitar. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. The sound, feel and build quality are impeccable. I am so happy this guitar is now out in the world for others to enjoy."

The J.R. Signature is expected to release in early 2021. For more information, head to Maton Guitars (opens in new tab).
