Aly says "I bought my first Maton from Beggs Musicworks in Nelson in 1980, My Maton has been my constant travel companion. Being Left handed I decided to buy the guitar that would last me for life, all my songs have been written on her & she sounds better with everyday I play her" 

"It is such an honor to be awarded endorsement by Maton, their beautiful hand crafted guitars are still made in Australia today, as they have been since 1946 when founder Bill May lovingly created the most amazing rich sounding guitars. Today the new models sound just as good" 

"My new endorsed guitar is a left handed Tobacco Sunburst Mini Maton and will be my constant companion on Air New Zealand flights, as its a small body guitar with a huge sound, is easier to travel than my precious 30 year old Maton.. who will now be retired from road and used for recording only.
