Maton MS500...

Postby KH Guitar Freak » Thu Oct 08, 2009 12:32 am

Recently got a used Maton MS500 in creamy white and and red pickguard (don't think they offer this colour scheme no more, and that includes the older ones with Kluson style tuners vs. newer ones with Grovers). Hell, such underrated guitar for the money I swear. Might try other P90s that offer more crunch though, just a preference thing...

Are you saying that you reckon that they do crunch? Maybe there must be some setup tips then, cause it's more on the rounded and fat end of the spectrum... :lol:

To be honest, they are actually pretty decent. Just that they don't crunch much, that's it really...

I had Octoban once, it was kind of like calamari but a bit chewier.

Oh man, the temptation is there. But surely Jim has had enough of the Wiggles references by now :-D
