2021 Jean Barault Maccaferri

2021 Jean Barault Maccaferri
Here's a chance to get a guitar from one of France's best luthiers for less. This beautiful guitar was built by the renowned French luthier Jean Barault. Biréli Lagrène and Tchavolo Schmitt currently endorse Barault guitars. This very guitar was used professionally by the pre-war Django expert Duved Dunayevsky.

This guitar includes:

  • Indian Rosewood back and sides
  • A real pliage (the top is heat bent just like the older Selmers!)
  • European spruce top
  • 650mm scale
  • 12 fret neck
  • Walnut neck
  • Body specs (15 13/16" body, 3 13/16" deep)
  • Lacquered interior (just like the vintage Selmers)
  • Barault tailpiece
  • Barault Vintage Style Brass Closed Tuners
  • Internal Soundbox
  • Fretboard extension

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.

Barault is one of the very few luthiers today actually making Selmer copies with a real pliage. He uses the method that Selmer did...the top is bent with a hot iron which creates a fold, or "pliage," in the top just under the bridge. 99% of Selmer copies being made today have forced tops which generally don't have the punch, volume, and quick attack that the pliage tops have.

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 freely....no 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.
