High quality Selmer Maccaferri bridge made by Maurice Dupont in Cognac, France. Dupont authorizes these bridges for use only with Dupont guitars or vintage French made instruments. Please do not order these for use with guitars by other contemporary manufacturers.
To anyone who has or is about to get a Gitane, YOU MUST GET THIS BRIDGE!! After i had the stock bridge taken off and the dupont fitted, it was like playing an entirely different guitar! I still can't believe how big of a difference it made! Even my local luthier (who said changing the bridge wouldn't make much of a difference) was amazing at the change in tonal quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! A MUST BUY for Gitane guitars!!

Much improved tone
It's funny that adding one piece off of a Dupont guitar improved my guitar so much. The treble is crisper and brighter and the bass is more articulate and no longer boomy. Well worth every penny of 75 dollars.

I bought this bridge from Michael for the Joseph Di Mauro F hole guitar that he sent me not long ago. The guitar's action was much too high for me at well over 3.5mm. The Dupont #1 brought it down to a much more comfortable level, and once it was fitted to the guitar, playability was excellent, with great tone. The Dupont bridges are of very high quality, highly recommended.

Pros: sleek, playable, tonal superiority
Wow, the bridge upgrade really does make a difference. I had wondered about compatibility with my gypsy d-hole built by Aria but the Dupont bridge fits perfectly. It plays better, the strings gravitate to their natural inclination as this bridge has no grooves. I love thay about classical guitar and I am thrilled to have this feature on my metal stringed friend.

The rosewood Dupont bridge is an excellent alternate bridge for adjusting string height and action. I'm using one on my Dupont VRB with no issues. Nice fit and after a little sanding I lowered my action down from 3.5 mm to 2.5 mm.
