‘Made In Australia’ by Wadih Hanna


You may have noticed my guitarnerd blog has been very quiet for the last six months. The reason is I’ve been working on a HUGE exciting project which is nearly finished… a book based on the amazing Maton collection of Wadih Hanna, who has most probably the best collection of vintage Matons in the world. It’s been an absolute honour working on this book and I’m really excited to finally be able to share this with everyone. I know I’m biased but it honestly looks amazing. The guitars featured inside are works of art. The final printed book will be ready in November but we’ll be starting up a crowd funding campaign soon to help with printing. (This is a totally independent book… no publishers or sponsors.) I’ll keep you informed as things progress. Cheers – Tony
