Maton Mastersound 501 guitar with Artist model pickup. Given as a prize at the big Shihad NZ music month gig in Aotea square in 2005. I have no support documentation for this guitar. When I contacted Maton they knew all about it.

I purchased it in 2006 from the lady who won it dring the gig . It was still in its box nearly a year later having been posted directly to her from the Maton factory in Melbourne.

This is a basic mock up of of a John Toogood guitar. Unfortunately they did not go the whole way. It has a different scale length, the neck is unbound and it has a black knob instead of chrome.
This is piece of Shihad history. Not quite a Toogood signature guitar but as close as they come

It comes with a big rectangle case.

It has some marks and scratches. The bubble wrap left some marking on the headstock as it was wrapped up for nearly a year. The are 2 cracks in the paint in the cutaway sections by the neck. There are scratches on the front.and it has bit of bucklerash and stuff. It has a nitro finish and I guess I should have been a bit more carefull but it now has a few minor battle scars.

Currently it has a blue home made scratchplate with a seymour duncan tele pickup and a 3 way switch. I have the original plate, coil tap switch and knob so it can easily be converted back to its original configuration. It already had the cavities so It has had no routing done to it since it left the factory. I put a shiny knob on it.

I will put up more pics.

I love this guitar and have played it live, at home and jamming with the crew. It is a real guitar, in no way 2nd grade or a clone or knock off. Keith McMillan dressed the frets and replaced one a while ago.

Unfortunately it has to go.

Want a bit of Shihad history. Here it is.
