Received wisdom says that all the Selmers built by Favino had rosewood necks. But some rosewood neck Selmers were built in the factory, too. The rosewood blanks were supposedly too dense to shape on Selmer's machinery and Jacques Favino carved them by hand. I played the Selmer/Favino guitar in the link above 25 years ago. It was an amazing guitar, though the neck was so heavy that it did not rest easily on the thigh - the headstock wanted to droop.
