Just wanted to share my day with you all.

First off, I'd like to say that it was a great experience, and fun.
Of course, today I went for a tour of a guitar factory. The name of the Company is Maton's. The guitars aren't known that well, but the beatles did play a Maton guitar which was auctioned off for a fair sum of money.

First of all, this is the guy that handles the custom shop guitars.

He's got a great sense of humor and had some great information on guitar woods and what's done.

Then to the electrics.

Electric guitar in process.


Bunch of sexy guitars awaiting painting.


Then the guitars were painted and setup.
The guys at Matons were very insistent with themselves to set up their guitars perfectly before sending them off to stores. And they did one hell of a job with that!
It was a very good day all together, and fun. Lots of information to be had. Would've been nice if I could've taken pictures of the whole process, but I forgot.

But yeah, twas a good day.

P.s, I've got more pictures which may come soon, but we'll see.
Signatures are overrated.

Well that's what I thought too.
Then I saw the electrics in the shop and they looked beautiful.

Sounds like a good day, thanks for sharing.

Larrivee actually makes all of its guitars in my hometown, and I've considered on several occasion going for a tour, or attempt to get a job...
