    Keef played a Maton in the studio on Gimme Shelter. According to folk lore, it fell apart in his hands on the last note of the last track he recorded.

    I've played a few of their acoustics and one of their electrics, all of them top notch

    Had an L202 paid $120.00 for it around 1973, horrid little thing.

    Let it go last year for 2 slabs of beer, the new owner restored it and didn't love it either.

    It moved over to WA for around $3.5K.

    Looks nicely curated. I've only played a couple that have made the long trek to the states and would like to see this overview.
