Maurice Dupont 2007 VR Vieille Reserve Oval Hole Guitar (Indian Rosewood Back and Sides) with Hardsh

Just lowered this to 6000....DEAL OF THE CENTURY! A new Vieille Reserve will cost you 8500, this one is nearly unplayed and has been reduced to the unbelievable price of 6000! Doesn't get better than this....

This is Maurice Duponts top of the line Selmer copy. No detail is overlooked with both the materials and workmanship being of the highest caliber. The track record of this instrument speaks for itself, as so many of todays top players use the Vieille Reserve model. Bireli Lagrene recorded the first two Gypsy Project CDs with this model. Patrick Saussois, of Alma Sinti fame, also plays a Dupont VR.


This guitar includes:

-A 40 year old aged Spruce top
-Indian Rosewood back and sides
-Deluxe, encased tuners
-The top has a real pliage (i.e. the wood was bent over a hot iron like the old Selmers. Almost all other Selmer copies have forced tops which arent as punchy).

The sound and playability of this instrument are the best Ive ever seen for a new guitar. The only thing better is an actual vintage Selmer or Busato in good condition which is impossible to find and would cost twice as much or more. The Dupont VR is a guitar that plays and feels like a new guitar, but has the clarity, punch, and tone of an old seasoned instrument. I know of no other luthier that builds a guitar with these qualities.

This guitar is best for those who like the Selmer sound. Favino lovers should look elsewhere as this instrument doesnt have the low end or honky upper mids that are characteristic of Favinos. Like the old Selmers, the Dupont VR is extremely bright with much of the sound concentrated in the extreme high frequencies. The midrange is almost nonexistent, and the low end has the traditional "hollow" sound to it. In the wrong hands a guitar like this can be very harsh...but when played with the Gypsy Picking technique, the guitar will yield single note lines that sing like no other. Each note is rounded and bell like with a smoky complexity only found in the best of instruments. This guitar also cuts like a knife and requires very little force to do so. Players with a light touch will be surprised at the volume this guitar can generate.

Like Selmers, this is not the best rhythm guitar because it is so brash. It is first and foremost a lead guitar. However, chord punches, tremolos, and other comping techniques sound great on this guitar because they cut so well. But when playing straight la pompe youll probably miss the lows that a Favino or Maccaferri have.

The guitar is in excellent conidtion and shows almost no signs of wear. There are a few very small dings on the binding. Other then that, it looks as good as new!

A TKL hardshell  case and owner certificate are included.
