Reply to "Neil's guitars, effects, amps"

There's been a lot of interest in Neil's "new" 12-string he's had in the recent shows, and the people who had their money on it being a Maton would be right! Smiler

I wrote to Neville Kitchen (Maton's CEO), whom I met a couple of years ago and he confirmed.

It's a Fyrbyrd FB 1220 from 1965 or 1966. (so it's not so "new") You can download the specs from here. (Choose the model and scroll to the bottom of the page):

Check out the original price! Big Grin

(or you can type Fyrbyrd in the search box).

Bad news 1: there is no nice pic Frowner
Bad news 2: Maton don't make them anymore (unless you can convince Neville that you're a rock-god). Frowner (
Bad news 3: they have none left in their inventory, so you can put your credit card away Frowner ((
