2007 Dupont MD-50

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 MD50 is Maurice's standard Selmer copy which is based on the same specifications as the legendary Selmer guitars produced from 1932-1951. This instrument features Indian rosewood back and sides, a French spruce top, and a walnut neck. Dupont's are known for their clear, dry tone and this instrument is no exception. Each note is well defined and projects well, without any of the annoying overtone ringing or muddiness that lesser guitars suffer from. Maurice's precision fretwork and neck geometry allow for easy playing low action which enables one to play even the most difficult passages with little effort. For these reasons, the MD50 has long been the "go to" guitar for professional Gypsy jazz guitarists. It has the most traditional Selmer tone and the best quality workmanship and materials that one can find in this price range. For these reasons it's our best selling guitar!

This used example is in excellent condition.There are some light scracthes, scuff marks, and a few very small dings on the top and binding. The frets have almost no wear. At one point the 10th fret side dot had been moved to the 9th fret. It has been moved back very cleanly and is only noticeable under close scrutiny. 

This instrument has had the frets leveled and crowned with a Plek machine by the legendary fret expert Mike Lull (this work cost $330.) As a result, the frets are even smoother than a new MD-50!

This MD-50 comes equipped with a bigtone pickup, a $435 value!

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