Jean Barault 2009 modèle Biréli Lagrène Oval Hole Guitar ***SOLD!!!***

This beautiful guitar was built by the renowned French luthier Jean Barault. Biréli Lagrène currently endorses Barault guitars and this instrument is built to Biréli's specs. Jean has also built guitars for Tchavolo Schmitt.
This guitar was used by Bireli Lagrene himself for one gig, so it has a small amount of "shop wear." There is a small amount of pick wear on the top. Barely noticable, but you get 1000 off because it's not perfect!

This guitar includes:

  • laminated Brazilian rosewood back and sides (the back is absolutely gorgeous on this one! It's a light brownish hue with darker streaks of brown, green, and yellow throughout. Never seen Brazilian like this!)
  • Spruce top
  • 670mm scale
  • 14 fret neck
  • Walnut neck
  • Selmer body specs (15 3/4" body, 3 3/4" deep)

The sound of this instrument is among the best Selmer copies being made today. It's no wonder Biréli chose to endorse Barault guitars as they offer a very traditional Selmer sound but have the playability of an ultra smooth archtop. The Barault is more rounded in the high end then a Dupont (the other master of Selmer copies). The Barault has a thicker midrange with a traditional Selmer like "boxiness" to it. This guitar is very loud but not quite as loud as a Dupont VR which tends to be a bit brighter and snappier. The Barault is a real thick sounding tone machine but still has enough bite to make it in a campfire jam.

It is currently strung with Argentine 11 gauge strings. Action is very low at 2.8mm...but is buzz free and sounds great at this height. As you would expect, the guitar plays very, very easily.

Barault certainly wins the award for weight...this guitar is feather weight at only 3.8 pounds! Hard to find anyone making guitars that lightweight today. The lower weight allows the guitar to resonate wonder it sounds so good!

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