What We Think

What a treat!  We rarely get to enjoy Selmer Maccaferri style guitars, particularly of this quality.  There is no finer design for "la pompe" purveyors.  A bonafide instrument for anyone at any level of progress in the Gypsy Jazz style.  John Le Voi has been making guitars of this style for almost 50 years and that dedication to craft couldn't be more evident in this piece.  The action is lower than what a purist would most likely prefer--something our luthier would be happy to address--but it certainly makes for an extremely comfortable-playing guitar, particularly for someone who is still pursuing proficiency in the style.

 

Condition: Used, Very good

Manufacturer's Description from Other

Established in 1970, I am a luthier specializing in high quality Selmer Maccaferri style guitars, as famously used by Django Reinhardt. I make Selmer style guitars in all the original configurations. i.e. 14 fret to body oval hole model with 670mm scale length, 12 fret to body oval hole model with 640mm scale length (the so-called "transitional" model), 12 fret to body D hole model (with or without the internal false back, sides, and reflector), with 640mm scale length, plus a 14 fret to body D hole model with 670mm scale length. This model was not produced by Selmer but has become popular in recent years.
