2012 Dupont MD-100

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 affordable version of Dupont's best selling MD50 model. The basic guitar is the same as the MD50, with the only differences being a satin finish and the more affordable woods choices: French spruce top, beautiful quilted mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck. I've never had an MD100 with such gorgeous figure, some Maurice's best wood!

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