2016 Eimers Antique

2016 Eimers Antique

Over the past decade Leo Eimers has been one of the prominent builders of Selmer Maccaferri guitars in the Netherlands. Based in Almere, just outside of Amsterdam, Eimers builds his instruments entirely himself by hand. He is particularly well respected as a student of "Golden Age" luthiers such as Maccaferri, Selmer, Busato, and Favino. He uses his knowledge of these luthiers to build some of the most authentic and well constructed Selmer copies available. His instruments have been used by many professionals over the years, most notably Stochelo and Nous'che Rosenberg of the Rosenberg Trio, Robin Nolan, Boulou Ferre, and Wawau Adler.

This is Leo's Model Antique which is his attempt to replicate not only the original design and construction of the original Selmer petite bouche model, but to also recreate both the sonic and aesthetic effects of 60 or more years of ageing. The result is a guitar with a convincing, vintage like patina and a mature, explosive voice.

This instrument features a spruce top, highly figured Brazilian rosewood back and sides, and a walnut neck. The vintage looking Eimers closed tuners evoke the look and feel of the original Selmer HSC tuners. In keeping with the vintage theme, the headstock has "Django Reinhardt" engraved on it, just like Django's own personal Selmer #503. This instrument is gig ready, with a bigtone pickup that is wired to an endpin jack.

Weighing in at only 3.8 lbs, this guitar is exceptionally light weight and resonant, evoking the sound and feel of the great vintage Selmers of yesteryear.  Like a good vintage instrument, this guitar has exceptional clarity of tone, with a chimey, brilliant high end and a tight, focused bass response.

This instrument is in mint condition and is set up with buttery, ultra low 2.4mm action.

This is a chance to get obtain a mint, custom Eimers guitar at a great price! A new one would cost nearly $1000 more, making this instrument an exceptional deal.

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