Maton BB-1200 JH (Josh Homme signature model)
We recently had the BB-1200 in stock, and it sold before we even had the chance to have a good look at it! So we ordered one from Maton again and here it is.
Designed in close collaboration with QOTSA frontman Josh Homme, the BB-1200 JH is a truly unique instrument that will do allot more than heavy stoner riffs. The clever design gives it a broad pallete of sounds that will suit jazz,blues and classic-rock players too.
The basis for it's semi-hollow design is a Queensland maple core topped with a solid (!) Victorian Blackwood top and back! The neck is made of maple and gives the guitar rigidity and tons of sustain.The Maton designed Bad Boy alnico 8 pickups compliment the guitar, and have a rich warm clean tone, and a big fat overdriven tone, though I was also impressed by how they clean up when slighty lowering the volume.
The guitar is comfortably light, the action is great and the satin finished neck feels nice and smooth. The crafstmanship is immaculate, and shows Maton has a long tradition of guitarbuilding.
