The guitar we see pictured above is a Maton Gold Line 750. It is of set-neck construction with a slab body featuring a German carve appropriately - given the model name - picked out in gold. Apparently only 210 examples of this model were built between 1962-1963, before the design evolved into the better-known Maton Fyrbyrd.
This guitar is in superb condition and is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $5000 (US Dollars).
