1980 John Le Voi 12 Fret

1980 John Le Voi 12 Fret
John Le Voi has been producing Selmer copies since 1970, making him one of the most experienced and prolific contemporary Gypsy jazz luthiers. This unusual model features the smaller dimensions of a 12 fret Maccaferri but has an oval hole instead of a D. It has an extremely warm, rich tone but is free of the excessive wetness and bass heaviness that often plagues D hole guitars. It makes a great rhythm guitar, especially for someone who wants full, meaty chords with some bite and attitude.

This instrument includes a hand carved "cello style" tailpiece, a common featurs of Le Voi's guitars.

The top has a genuine heat bent pliage, done in the manner of the original Selmer. This feature is normally only found on very expensive flagship guitars by Dupont and Barault.

This guitar was originally owned by Laurence Juber (lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's wings and award winning solo fingerstylist).

The condition is excellent, with only some light pick and fret wear. There was once a strap peg on the back which was moved to the heel. The hole is still visible on the back.

Includes original case with Laurence Juber's name painted on the side. The case is in poor condition and should probably be replaced, although it does have some nostalgic value.

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