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.
The MD60 is a variation of the very popular MD50 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.
The tone on this particular example is exceptional! It posses unusually warm mids which yield rounded, full lead lines and big, robust chords.
