1950's J.B. Castelluccia - For Trade

DominikDominik ✭✭✭
Some of you probably saw it on reverb already. (https://reverb.com/item/16617054-french-gypsy-jazz-guitar-castelluccia-for-rene-gerome-1953-aged-natural-satin)
I decided to go a different way with this guitar and I would like to trade it for a solid body electric guitar.

It's a 1953 J.B. Castelluccia with a label by René Gérome on the inside. (It was pretty common to have luthiers build guitars for other labels).
I found this guitar in France few years back. Guitar was repaired, a new ebony fingerboard, frets and nut was recreated.

Top is spruce, Back and Sides are ply. The guitar has a soft Bombé on the back.

14 cases out the body.
Scale is 26.5".
Width at nut: 1.75"
Upper bout: 11.25"
Lower bout: 15.5"
4" deep.

This is a perfect collector guitar or the perfect instrument for a django aficionado.

Some of the veneer bindding is missing.

I would probably change the tuner for some SB tuners and I would change the bridge but it's playable right now.

Feel free to ask questions.
