2013 Cholet Modele Jazz
Yohann Cholet, who hails from a long line of woodworkers, first gained a passion for lutherie in his teens while building violins in his grandfather's workshop. After graduating with honors from the acclaimed lutherie program at the Newark & Sherwood College in England, Yohann joined the ranks of the "new school" of French craftsman building guitars in the Selmer Maccaferri style. His instruments are known for their elegant workmanship, sublime tone, and easy playability. Yohann's guitars are particularly noteworthy for the fact that they are "slow built" entirely from hand tools, a rarity in this age of power tools and CNC machines.

This fine example of Yohann's work is a classic Selmer copy with the standard Selmer specifications (15 3/4" body and a 670mm scale.) The top was crafted from 60 year aged sitka spruce, the neck from mahogany (with a Selmer style grafted headstock), and the back sides are highly figured Indonesian rosewood. This is a particularly beautiful example which features a stunning sapwood "stripe" on the back.

The projection and playability of this instrument are on par with the best guitars being built in France, but that is not what separates this guitar from the rest. Rather, the tone it posses is what makes this instrument shine. Each note is comprised of a near perfect balance of mids and highs which yields a very satisfying and mellifluous tone. As easy on the hands as it is on the ears, this wonderful guitar is very forgiving of any type of playing technique (or lack of.) It seems to know just when to growl and just when to purr, it nearly plays itself!

This instrument has a small amount of "shop wear." There are some very light scratches and a small ding on the binding. Very minor wear, but the instrument has been discounted 0 so the savings is yours!

I only receive guitars once or so a year from Yohann, so this is a rare opportunity to grab a piece of cutting edge French luthiery at a very reasonable price.

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