2008 Tremblay Petite Bouche

2008 Tremblay Petite Bouche
Martin Trebley has long been known as the go to luthier in Montreal for vintage Gypsy guitar restoration. His experience restoring numerous vintage Busatos has given him a keen insight into what makes a great Gypsy guitar. This knowledge has been instrumental in the construction of his own instruments, which capture much of the magic of a great vintage instrument but without the quirks and headaches of an old, rickety guitar.

This Selmer copy is very traditional, with a spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, and a two piece walnut neck. Specs are typically Selmer, with a 15 3/4" body and a 670mm scale length. It is outfitted with a DR tailpiece and a set of brass Grover butter bean tuners. A few modern aesthetic touches include front and back ebony veneers on the headstock, a modern style "dotless" fingerboard, and a very slim heel for better high fret access.

This instrument has a wonderful balance, with a robust midrange characteristic of some of the best vintage Selmers. The bass register is prominent, yet tight and controlled while the highs are crisp, yet not harsh. These characteristics yield large, full bodied chords and smooth, singing lead lines which are reminiscent of Django's Rome sessions recordings.

The condition of this instrument is good, with a treble side top crack that has been cleated, a small streak of finish damage on the back, and an engraved name on he back of the headstock. There are numerous dings and scratches, and some moderate fret wear.

It's not often I have any handmade instruments under $3K, so this is a rare opportunity to get a luthier built instrument for less.

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