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 Nomade has the sound and playability of Dupont's best instruments at an affordable price!
This Nomade has sapelli back and sides, French spruce top, mahogany neck, and a satin finish. The neck is bolted on and can be removed which is handy when traveling.
The sound is very impressive....very similar to the MD-50 which is over twice the price!
Includes soft shell travel case.
