Here is a rare 14 fret D hole version of the storied Vieille Reserve
model...wow, what a treat! Very few of these have been made...most are
oval holes. This guitar is in "like new" condition and is discounted $1000 off the regular retail price of $8500. At $7500 it is one of the best deals in the shop!
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
aren't as punchy).
The sound and
playability of this instrument are the best I've 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 D hole
version has all the advantages of a D hole (full sound with a rich low
end and fat mids) with none of the disadvantages (most D holes tend to
be overly wet sounding and weak in the high end). This guitars has fat
lows like a flatop but the magic of the aged woods and real pliage give
it a lot of bite in the high end. Still cuts nicely for leads and
chords sound HUGE!
hardshell case, unopened bottle of Cognac, and owner certificate are included.
