Rudolph Blazer and Wilhelm Henkes have long been among the most respected makers of replica Martin and Gibson flatop guitars. They are known for their exacting standards of workmanship, premium quality materials, and meticulous attention to detail. Their instruments fetch top tier prices, making them among the most coveted builders working today with a wait list approaching five years.

Back in 2004, Blazer and Henkes directed their considerable skills towards building their own concept of a Gypsy jazz style instrument which resulted in this lovely Selmer inspired design. It features a select alpine spruce top, Indian rosewood, and a mahogany neck. Hardware includes a Saga tailpiece and a set of Grover butterbean tuners.

In most respects, Blazer and Henkes stuck fairly close to the original Selmer design, with a few flatop characteristics thrown in such as a lack of a zero fret, a herringbone rosette, and a saddled bridge. As a nice stylistic touch, the moustache pieces were chamfered.

The sound of this instrument is very rich, modern, and balanced. It has a thicker midrange and more bass than a typical Selmer guitar. The high end is very rounded and pleasing, without the brashness of more traditional sounding models. It projects well, with good clarity and a fairly dry, direct sound. It's a perfect choice for someone looking for a more balanced, versatile instrument that is at home in a Gypsy context as well as swing, folk, and beyond.

This instrument is in mint condition with few signs of use. Even the frets look new!  It plays exceedingly well, with very low 2.6mm action and very little buzz.
