Maurice Dupont has long been one of the most respected luthiers in France and one of the first contemporary makers to specialize in producing the Selmer Maccaferri guitar. Maurice first gained recognition as a builder of classical guitars and in 1989 was bestowed with the honor of "Best French Craftsman." Maurice was an apprentice of the legendary Gypsy guitar maker Jacques Favino, and in 1986 he began building his own Selmer style guitars which quickly became the most popular choice of professional Gypsy guitarists. Countless Gypsy stars including Raphael Fays, Biréli Lagrène, Tchavolo Schmitt, and Romane have played Dupont guitars which appear on hundreds of recordings.
The MD100 is an MD50, but with a satin finish and more affordable
woods.. French spruce top. Beautiful quilted mahogany back and sides. I've never had an MD100 with such gorgeous figure, some Maurice's best wood! The neck is also mahogany.
The sound of this example is particularly well balanced. Generally mahogany is a bit brighter and "simpler" in tone than rosewood. Surprisingly, this instrument has the balance and roundness of tone you'd expect of some of the finest rosewood guitars. Wonderfully warm and satisfying with the stunning looks to match!
This slightly used example is near mint condition. Other than one very small ding on the headstock, and a few light body scratches, it is indistinguishable from a new one. One of the best deals in the shop!
