In a Interview he recalled: “My main acoustic is a Maton, which is an Australian instrument. It’s fabulous — the best acoustic guitar I have ever played by a mile. It’s not too big, it’s not too small, it has an even sound, you can hear all the strings all the time, and the intonation is incredible. They’re hand built from Australian woods. It has a piezo and an internal microphone, and you can mix the two signals. I use 54-12 bronze strings, quite heavy, usually Dean Markley or Ernie Ball, but if it’s the right gauge it doesn’t matter to me who they’re made by. I have a second Maton that I take on tour with me as a spare." (http://www.performing-musician.com/pm/apr09/articles/philpalmer.htm)more
