From Maton – “The Mini Series of guitars have been on a steady upward rise since their inception all most eight years ago. Regardless of trends, the popularity of the minis has continued to grow.
Minis take in a range of tonewoods including Solid Victorian and Solid Queensland Maple editions. The EM 6 is an incredibly popular model and was developed in conjunction with Australian artist Diesel, an enormously successful local singer/songwriter. In fact, the Mini range was actually developed and grown thanks to his input. A great live instrument that can really be pushed to the limit of volume and rock and roll rowdiness, whilst maintaining its control and balance.”
Everything that was great about the EML6 is to be found on the EM6. Solid Qld Maple back and sides have replaced the old laminated Qld maple. This brings a fuller, richer tone which will improve even further over time as the wood learns to vibrate to its full potential.
Add to this the new double X bracing now found across the entire Mini range as well as Maton’s AP5 pickup system and you have a formidable combination.

This Maton Mini EM-6 presents in as-new condition. Apart from some very light swirling on the pickguard, there is not a mark or blemish on it anywhere. Light and comfortable, it plays well and sounds better than you’d expect a small guitar to sound. And it’s fitted with Maton’s excellent AP5 Original pickup system.
Bought new from a Sydney retailer only a few years ago, it has been played sporadically at home, and always kept in its case. Looks like it’s come straight out the box, and would suit a buyer seeking a new instrument at a discount to street price.
Comes in its Maton Mini fitted case in new condition.
