Maton semi-acoustic guitar bearing the Alver brandname, currently listed on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £499. Although the guitar has quite a lot of wear through use over the years, I'd say that price sounds very reasonable for one of these legendary Australian-made guitars, although I confess that I am not an expert. The machine heads are not original and the pickguard is missing (this is evidenced by enlarged lobe on the treble-side f-hole - no doubt this was to facilitate getting the pots and wiring loom inside the instrument).
