2008 Dupont Busato Royale Brazilian
Save a bundle on the mint Busato Royale! These are $5,500 new.

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 than Favinos or Selmers. Like the originals, this guitar also has a beautifully arched back.

This guitar has a European spruce top, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, ebony binding, a three piece walnut/ebony 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.

The tone of the Royale is a bit lusher then the other models, with more rounded highs and a bit more midrange fullness. Regardless, it still has the supreme cutting power that Busatos are known for.

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