Highly recommend for guitar purchases. I have been a guitar dealer for 30 years so I know how important it is to accurately describe the attributes of an instrument before a client buys it. Nobody wins if the guitar is returned. Being new to Gypsy Jazz and knowing a lot about guitars in general but little about Gypsy Jazz guitars specifically, I found myself oddly for me, in the position of ‘client’ instead of dealer when I chose to buy a good Gypsy Jazz guitar.

2019 Dupont MD50B

2019 Dupont MD50B

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.

Dupont's Gypsy models are built entirely in Cognac, France by master luthiers Patrick (who joined the Dupont team in 1994) and Mathias (since 2002) under the supervision of Maurice Dupont. The collective experience.of the Dupont team along with Maurice's stock of well aged, select tonewoods yields instruments of unsurpassed tone and playability.

This rare and beautiful MD-50B is a deluxe version of the tried and true workhorse of Gypsy jazz, the MD-50. Upgrades include gorgeous, highly figured Brazilian rosewood and European maple binding. The top is European spruce top and the neck is walnut.


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 1510MF strings.

Faux leather Dupont hardshell case included (made by TKL)

This mint  condition example is indiscernible from a new one yet priced $500 less which makes for a fantastic deal on this classic model!

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

Highly recommend for guitars!

Highly recommend for guitar purchases. I have been a guitar dealer for 30 years so I know how important it is to accurately describe the attributes of an instrument before a client buys it. Nobody wins if the guitar is returned. Being new to Gypsy Jazz and knowing a lot about guitars in general but little about Gypsy Jazz guitars specifically, I found myself oddly for me, in the position of ‘client’ instead of dealer when I chose to buy a good Gypsy Jazz guitar. Michael explained my options perfectly and, not having worked with him before, I checked what he told me with a very well known Gypsy Jazz artist who confirmed everything Michael said. I bought the guitar, a Dupont MD-50B and am extremely happy with my purchase. It is absolutely everything Michael said it would be. He has earned my complete trust, and as a fellow guitar dealer, that is not easy. Thanks Michael!
