Hi all I am thinking of buying my 16 year old son his 1 st decent guitar.
We looked at the local Billy Hyde shop here & he like the Maton MS 500 guitar.
I was just wondering what do you people in Melband think of this guitar.
He likes to pay Greeenday / Nivina / Foo fighters , Grinspoon etc type of music mainly.
Also your thoughts on the Maton MS 503 guitar.
Does any 1 know where there might be such guitars second hand?
Thanks for you input

I think Matons are Good Rock Guitars

I wouldn't try and play Metal on it and if I want to play Blues a Fender Stratocaster is a lot better

but it's Very good For

Rock. Grudge & punk

and from what you say the style of music your son plays sounds like it would fit perfectly.

and Foot69's one looks nice

They aren't the greatest, but I've never played one of the mastersounds that I didn't like. They all feel good and play well
