As we all know, Selmer guitars aren't just great for Gypsy jazz and can be used in just about anything from classical to blues. I just ran across this photo of the country legend Don Gibson. As his named would suggest, he typically played some really nice Gibson archtops and the occasional D'Angelico. But here he is playing a Selmer Maccaferri!
While the caption reads that "he plays a guitar once played by Django Reinhardt, the man Gibson considered the best guitar player who ever lived," the guitar is clearly not a vintage Selmer (9th fret dot, 14 fret D hole.) Regardless, Don clearly had an appreciation for finely made instruments and those who played them best!
