As Keith Richards played the final notes of Gimme Shelter when recording the classic Rolling Stones album Let It Bleed the neck of his guitar fell off.

Careful listeners can supposedly detect the guitar breaking on the original 1969 take but few would know the instrument was an Australian-made Maton EG240 Supreme.

The last time The Beatles played Liverpool's Cavern Club in 1963 the guitar George Harrison was wielding was not his usual Gretsch Country Gentleman but a Maton.

That Mastersound MS-500, which had been lent to Harrison while his favoured Gretsch was being repaired, sold for just shy of $650,000 at auction in 2018.

Maton may not have the mainstream recognition of makers such as Fender, Gibson or Rickenbacker but the Australian-built guitar has held its own on the world stage for more than half a century.

Elvis Presley played a Maton HG100 Hillbilly in his 1957 movie Jailhouse Rock and Harry Vanda of The Easybeats was picking a Maton when he wrote Friday On My Mind.

Ray Davies played a Maton - which he once unkindly called a 'fake Australian Gretsch' - throughout You Really Got Me in 1964 for The Kinks' first number one hit.  

The Maton factory has also made guitars for Neil Diamond, Men At Work's Colin Hay, Harry Connick jnr and Crowded House lead singer Neil Finn.

Keith Urban, Missy Higgins, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, John Williamson, Archie Roach, Garry Beers of INXS, Diesel, Paul Kelly and Daniel Johns of Silverchair all play Matons. 

Australia's leading guitar manufacturer began in a Melbourne backyard workshop in 1946 when jazz musician and woodwork teacher Bill May formed the Maton Musical Instruments Company with his older brother Reg. 

The company's trademark is a combination of the May surname with 'tone' and is pronounced 'MAY-tonne'.

Maton was the first guitar manufacturer to use Australian timber on a large scale, with models created from local maple, walnut, bunya, blackwood and satin box.

Bill May's business philosophy was simple: 'If you make a good guitar, the right guitar, people will want it.' 

Since its basic beginnings, Maton has created more than 200 guitar models and gained an international reputation for building the highest-quality instruments. 

The May brothers opened Australia's first major guitar making facility at Canterbury in 1949 and moved to a bigger facility at Bayswater in 1990. 

Bill May, who died in 1993, is regarded by many Australian luthiers, or makers of stringed instruments, as the founding father of their industry. 

His importance to the history of music has been recognised at the Australian Music Association Awards, where he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame. 

Maton guitars have been hand-crafted in a factory at Box Hill since 2003 and the company, which employees 70 people, is still family-owned and tour đài loan từ hà nội operated.
