2004 Dell'Arte 503

2004 Dell'Arte 503

Here's a rare opportunity to own a fine, handmade guitar at a price normally reserved for Asian imports. This high quality Selmer copy was handmade in Dell'Arte's California workshop and features laminate rosewood back and sides, a spruce top, and a walnut neck. Hardware includes a set of Gotoh Three-on-a-Plate tuners and a DR tailpiece. A bigtone pickup is included.

As the name of this guitar suggests, it's closely based on Django's own Selmer #503. In addition to the classic body specs, this instrument has only four top braces, just like Django's own, very unusual Selmer.

Being a fairly accurate Selmer copy, this instrument produces a very traditional tone that is reminiscent of Django's classic recordings. It has the crisp highs and juicy, complex mids that are so characteristic of the classic Selmer sound. The lack of the 5th bass brace improves the bass response, yielding that warm tone you hear on so many of Django's recordings.

The condition of this instrument is excellent, showing only a few signs of mild use. Other than a few small dings on the binding, a few scuff marks on the back, and some tarnish on the tailpiece, it's almost like new and plays easily with low 2.8mm action.


Dell'Arte stopped producing guitars over a decade ago. Here's a rare chance to get one in fantastic condition!
