Shelley Park needs no introduction. Over the past decade she has earned a reputation as one of the top makers of Selmer style guitars. Her guitars are known for their impeccable workmanship, aesthetic beauty, and warm satisfying tone. This guitar is no exception.
The Modèle Montmarte features Favino dimensions: 670mm scale, 16 1/2" lower bout, and a 4" body depth. The top is Sitka spruce and the back and sides are made of solid Indian rosewood. The neck is maple. Like many of the classic Favino guitars, a celluloid pickguard has been installed in the top.
The guitar is outfitted with a set of Schaller Deluxe tuners and a DR tailpiece. It is in near mint condition, with no discernible fret wear and just a few very light scratches on the body.
Tonally, this instrument replicates much of the magic of the classic Favino guitars. It has a robust bass register which produces big sounding chords and deep bass runs. More importantly, it has that classic Favino "honk" in the upper midrange that is such a key tonal element of legendary Favino players like Matelo Ferret, Han'sche Weiss, early Bireli Lagrene, Tchan Tchou Vidal, etc.
With vintage Favinos becoming more and more collectable, this Park Favino style guitar offers great Favino tone at an affordable price!
