2012 Dupont MDC-50

2012 Dupont MDC-50
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."

The tone on this particular example is exquisite! Very rich and complex while still being dry enough to cut nicely. Lead lines are very warm, thick, and satisfying....has the sort of tonal balance that makes it a great guitar for many styles other than Gypsy jazz. Duponts are always good, but only once in a while are they this good!

This slightly used example is in excellent condition. There are numerous dings on the binding, mostly on the bass bout but also a bit on the treble bout. Other than that, this guitar is indiscernible from a new one. Action is set at an ultra low of 2.4mm allowing for the kind of playability most only dream of!

This model sells for $4250 new. Save big on this excellent example that is less than a year old!

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