2012 Dupont MD50B

2012 Dupont MD50B
This rare and beautiful MD50B is a deluxe version of the tried and true workhorse of Gypsy jazz, the MD50. Upgrades include gorgeous, highly figured Brazilian rosewood and European maple binding. The top is European spruce top and the neck is walnut.

The Brazilian back and sides of this guitar are among the most highly figured and exotic I've ever come across. The back has a set of book matched "eyes" with some light sapwood running down the middle. I've nicknamed this one the "face" as the back looks like someone staring at you! One of Maurice's most memorable guitars....

This guitar has the refinement of tone and playability you'd expect of Dupont's flagship MD series model. Single notes are thick, almost syrupy, with a roundness and sweetness reminiscent of some of the best Selmer guitars of the 1940s.  If you tend to shy away from brighter guitars in favor of more mids, then this guitar is for you!

This guitar also posses Dupont's signature "dry" sound which is free of annoying echo and overtone ringing. Each note is clear, present, and precise. Chords are rich and complex making chord melody playing a joy.

Action is set at a very comfortable 2.8mm. Strung with Argentine 1610MF strings.

Hiscox LiteFlight PRO-AC II Gypsy Guitar Case included.

This pre-owned example has only some light fret wear and a handful of small scratches on the top and back. Otherwise, it's been very well taken care of and is a bargain at nearly /00 less than a new MD50B!

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