6 months post-purchase: This is the 2nd Selmer style guitar I've owned and I'm immensely pleased with it. Duponts are a dream. The tone is amazing - really nice and dry, with clear and lovely sustain. As a female with smaller hands than most players in this genre, I find the slightly shorter scale more comfortable. The volume/projection is not lost on this shorter scale model. Other notes: despite it being used, this guitar has been well-cared for and it looks lovely. I had a Big Tone pick...

This 650 mm scale-length guitar is a great choice for players used to a 24.75 to 25.5 inch scale. It feels very comfortable and has that classic Dupont sound. If you have a smaller hand or need an easier-playing instrument this is the perfect solution.

2014 Dupont MD50 (Custom Short Scale)

A custom version of Dupont's best selling guitar. Features an easy playing short scale neck!

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. Duponts 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 example is in excellent condition with few signs of use. There is a small ding on the binding near the cutaway and a piece of velcro was glued to the back of tailpiece. Otherwise, this guitar is indiscernible from a new one.


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

I had a Big Tone pickup installed and prefer it to the Peche a la Mouche I used previously. Lastly, Michael H/Djangobooks was truly wonderful to work with. I feel really fortunate to own this guitar!
