2008 Dupont MDC50

2008 Dupont MDC50
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 MDC-50 has been THE go to guitar for pros for over two decades. It's one of the few D holes that accurately produces a traditional Selmer tone with the added lows and mids of a D hole. D holes often sound too dark and muddy...but this fine guitar is finely balanced so that you get the rich sound of a D hole without loosing the high end cutting power that the oval holes have. Very warm with just enough "crunch."

This slightly used example is in excellent condition. There is just one ding on the binding on the bass bout and some light scracthes on the body and top. There is also a scuff mark on the cutaway which resulted in a small patch of rough finish. The frets have some light wear but there is still plenty of life left in them. Other than that, this guitar is indiscernible from a new one.

This model sells for $4250 new. Save big on this excellent example!

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