Sonically this instrument is nothing short of astounding! It posses every element required of an exquisite sounding Selmer copy: dry tone, rounded highs, warm mids, tight bass, and lots of volume. The balance of this instrument is near perfect, making it very forgiving and easy to record or amplify. Also, it is nearly free of overtone ringing of any kind, a problem that is the downfall of so many lesser guitars. Most importantly, it has that ineffable "Selmer tone" that makes anything you play on it sound instantly like Django. While checking all the boxes for traditional tone and projection, this instrument simultaneously has the balance and roundness of more modern guitars making it very versatile and exceptionally musical. If you're looking for warmth and roundness of tone than this instrument is for you. Lebreton excels at producing instruments which are free of the brash, overly bright qualities found in many other traditional Selmer copies. Instead, his guitars produce deep, rich mids; a full, but clear bass; and rounded highs that have enough oomph for leads without being harsh.
Playability is excellent, with comfortable 2.8mm action putting it in the range preferred by most players.
This is a guitar worth buying first and asking questions later, as workmanship and sound quality of this caliber is rarely found at this price. Here's a chance to own something really special without breaking the bank.
