2017 Bumgarner Selmer ***NEW PRICE!!!***

I'm pleased to have this wonderful guitar for sale from Craig Bumgarner, a Maryland based luthier who has long been a regular participant in the Gypsy jazz community both on our forum, at festivals, and with his own group the Hot Club of DC. A boat builder by trade, Craig has turned his highly refined wood working skills towards the art of Selmer Maccaferri style luthierie.

This is Craig's Selmer style model which is modeled closely after the original Selmer petite bouche design. It features a slightly larger 16" body and a 670mm scale. The top was constructed from a fine piece of sitka spruce and was heat bent in the manner of the original Selmers (a heat bent pliage top is a high end feature normally reserved for flagship models double the price of this instrument!) Craig opted for beautiful koa back and sides. The neck was fashioned from an attractive piece of butternut walnut. This instrument has been outfitted with a set of Swiss made Miller tuners and a Miller tailpiece.

This instrument is noteworthy for it's robust bass response and very clear, trebles that provide plenty of cutting power for acoustic leads.

This instrument is in excellent condition. There is a  smattering of smaller dings and scratches on the top, but otherwise it's very clean. The frets appear to have almost no wear.

It is rare I have handmade guitars of this quality for under $4000, and even rarer ones that sound this good. This instrument is no doubt a fantastic deal so take advantage of this attractive price as I'm sure Craig's prices will go up has his reputation grows.

This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
