1962/63 Australian-made Maton FyrByrd on eBay UK - but get in quick if you want it...
This early 1960s Maton FyrByrd is a guitar rarely seen outside of Australia, let alone being offered for sale on eBay UK. Sorry guys, I only saw this on eBay very late in the day, and this auction actually finishes in JUST OVER 3 HOURS TIME as I type this. Bidding is currently at £908 with reserve not yet having been reached. [EDIT: The winning bid was £1,010]. Maton is a very well respected - and quite collectible - guitar manufacturer.

I like the legends on some of the controls. Check out the pickup selectors (hey, it beats Gibson's ridiculous "Rhythm/Treble")...

...not to mention the Sound Barrier control knob!

  1. It's not without its charms, but that headstock is hideous.
