I've been playing this instrument for 6-7 months now, and the tone - stellar to begin with - continues to improve. It has a beautiful low rumble perfect for rhythm, with complexities that are still emerging. The high end is simultaneously crisp and mellow. I had the neck shaved down a month or two after it arrived to accommodate my smaller hands, with no ill effects. Michael was patient, responsive and instructive from first to last, answering questions I was embarrassed to have to ask, as well...

2021 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.

Dupong MDC50

Pros: Tone, tone, tone!

I've been playing this instrument for 6-7 months now, and the tone - stellar to begin with - continues to improve. It has a beautiful low rumble perfect for rhythm, with complexities that are still emerging. The high end is simultaneously crisp and mellow. I had the neck shaved down a month or two after it arrived to accommodate my smaller hands, with no ill effects. Michael was patient, responsive and instructive from first to last, answering questions I was embarrassed to have to ask, as well as those I didn't know enough to ask. After-sale support was there as well - he replaced a tuner for which there was a minor problem. Communication was prompt and helpful. I had been able to play an earlier year of this same model for a few hours and knew I liked that one, but had been concerned about buying an untried instrument online. I love this guitar and suspect it'll be a long time if ever before I start jonesing for another, but if it happens I will happily deal with Michael again.
