Following up on Jeff's review, I bought one of his mentioned MDC-50's (the 14 fret) through Michael. The first thing you notice is how light it is. You really feel the sound reverberate against your body. Nice neck too. While it certainly packs punch for rhythm, it's got plenty of brightness for soloing. One sweet guitar.

I have owned two of these d-hole Duponts.Presently down to 1. They are very well built . Great gypsy tone and quite loud. Not as dry as some europiean guitars but the large soundhole might have something to do with that. Wonderfull guitars that will last a lifetime...

This is a wonderful guitar in so many ways. The light construction and neck profile are very comfortable, giving you hours of stree-free enjoyment. The guitar is louder than my 1932 National Triolian, which is to say it is a cannon that will get you heard with any band and will require some consideration for others when playing lead.

2020 Dupont MDC50

2020 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.

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 MDC50 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 is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.

I completely concur

Following up on Jeff's review, I bought one of his mentioned MDC-50's (the 14 fret) through Michael. The first thing you notice is how light it is. You really feel the sound reverberate against your body. Nice neck too. While it certainly packs punch for rhythm, it's got plenty of brightness for soloing. One sweet guitar.

What a cannon!

This is a wonderful guitar in so many ways. The light construction and neck profile are very comfortable, giving you hours of stree-free enjoyment. The guitar is louder than my 1932 National Triolian, which is to say it is a cannon that will get you heard with any band and will require some consideration for others when playing lead. The tone is not sacrificed to volume and it has that dry woodiness we all know and love from the vintage Selmer recordings. The attention to details and craftsmanship are top notch. Merci monsieur Dupont!
