This guitar is nothing short of a Maple extravaganza! It features gorgeous European Maple back, sides, and neck...and has maple binding as well! Too beautiful for words....this thing just glows in your hands. The top is European spruce and the fingerboard is ebony.
I had ordered this same maple model last year and it was one of the best Dupont's that had ever come through the shop. I was curious to see if this was just a fluke or if there's something unique about Dupont's maple 14 fret D holes. So I ordered another one and sure enough, the tone and projection of this one are off the charts! The maple guitars are generally a bit darker and that is true of this one. Lots of mid range warmth with rounded, thick highs. The bass is more prominent than on the oval hole models, but not overwhelming or muddy. Very balanced with lots of "Wow factor." Its got loads of projection with a bit of openness to the tone. Complex and interesting....would be a perfect guitar for recording but also has the bark for a jam session. All in all, one of Dupont's masterpieces!
