This is the first of Dupont's much anticipated copies of the classic Busato design. It is a near exact copy, with the classic Busato proportions: 670mm scale length and a 16 1/4" body size. 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.
This guitar has a European spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, ivoroid binding, a three piece 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.
