2005 Collins Ritary Gaguanetti

2005 Collins Ritary Gaguanetti

This wonderful Selmer copy was handmade by Canadian luthier Michael Collins. A graduate of the Roberto Venn school of luthiery, Collins was one of the first luthiers in North America to construct accurate copies of Selmer guitars. Collins is equally famous as both an instructor and luthier. He is currently teaching Selmer luthiery techniques at the Roberto Venn school. Collins' research on the subject is contained in his book Building a Selmer-Maccaferri Guitar as well as his instructional video.

This example of Michael's work is a Selmer copy loaded with high end features. The wood choices include a spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, and a walnut neck. Additionally, the guitar is outfitted with Gotoh tuners and a DR tailpiece. The interior of the body is lacquered and a bigtone pickup has been installed.

The condition of this guitar is very good. The top is very clean, with just some light scratches. The back has a few dings and one large scratch on the lower treble bout. The frets are lightly worn and still have plenty of life left in them.

This instrument possess a well balanced, clear tone with the high end snap that is favored by most contemporary Gypsy players. The mature high end and fast attack of this guitar will insure that your lead lines will project nicely with little effort. Chords are well defined and not overly bass heavy, allowing for rhythm playing that is crisp and "crunchy."

This guitar plays comfortably with very low 2.2mm action.
