2008 Dupont BUSATO Standard Oval Hole Guitar (Mahogany Back and Sides) with Hardshell Case ***SOLD!!
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) whichis more curved
then Favinos or Selmers. Like the originals, this guitar also has a
beautifully arched back.
This guitar has a European spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and
tortoise binding. It has a satin finish.
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 is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd
like to pay with a credit card
