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 MD-60 is a variation of the every popular MD-50 model. It features a satin finish, gorgeous Santos rosewood back and sides, and a mahogany neck. Standard Selmer specs: 670mm neck, 15 3/4" body.
Every so often I receive a guitar from Maurice that is just a cut above, and this is certainly one of those. The tone is really exquisite on this example, with gently rounded highs and a delicious complexity in the midrange. It's extremely satisfying to play and, with only 3mm action, also very easy to play as well!
