2009 Dupont BUSATO Luxe Oval Hole Guitar CUSTOM (Indian Rosewood Back and Sides, Ebony Binding) with
Dupont's Busato guitars have quickly become one of our best sellers! It
is a near exact copy, with the larger 16 1/4" Busato body. However, the
scale is like a Selmer: 670mm. It also features the famous Busato bombe
(top arch) which is more curved then Favinos or Selmers. Like the
originals, this guitar also has a beautifully arched back.
We custom ordered this one with ebony binding (this model normally has
ivoroid binding). It gives the guitar a dark, mysterious look...just
stunning! and the only one like it....
This guitar has a European spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides,
ebony binding, a three piece mahogany/maple neck, a vintage finish and
the deluxe Busato tuners.
The sound is very close to the originals, and in many cases is almost
indistinguishable. Like the vintage Busatos, this guitar has a bright,
dry tone with a very clear, bell like high end. Busatos are built for
cutting power and Dupont has definitely succeeded in achieving that.
Generally, Busatos are some of the loudest Gypsy guitars ever built and
this guitar lives up to that tradition. This particular Luxe is ultra
crunchy....each chord you play sounds like a bag of chips being
crushed, so cool! Also one one of the loudest we've had and it has
deep, yet very defined bass.
