    Thankyou... so far I'm very happy with it... but I feel bad for my other ukes as I know they will be neglected for a little while.

    Congratulations! It looks gorgeous. I've been wondering about the Maton ukes.. I imagined they'd be really nice. Enjoy!

    It is a beauty. It must be an Australian brand and Blackwood must be an Australian local wood? It looks a lot like Mahagony to me. Is is similar to Mahagony? Congratulations!!! I love new uke days.

    Yep Aussie brand using Aussie Timbers http://www.maton.com.au/index.php

    Hmm i dont know much about wood but i personally think it is lighter than Mahogany.

    Thanks for the congrats, i'm very happy with it. The workmanship is amazing i cannot fault it at all...truely unbelievable.

    I think Maton only made 150 in this model but are possibly brining out more next year.

    My mate got No.71, I'm going over to his place to jam tonight to butcher some songs, I'm pretty interested to see the finish of his also.

    That is one BEAUTIFUL uke! Can't wait to hear a sound sample!!

    Yes, for our American friends ....... Maton is a well known & respected Aussie Acoustic Guitar Maker (and also made some ukes back in the 60s from memory) and only recently got back into making them again!

    You'll have lots of happy times playing that little beautie!!
