Here is a wonderful long scale oval hole guitar by the illustrious Vancouver, B.C. builder Michael Dunn. This very experienced and capable luthier has a career that stretches back to the late 60s. As far as anyone knows, Michael was the first North American luthier to make Selmer inspired guitars.
While Michael's instruments are clearly based on Mario Maccaferri's original designs, they are much more than mere copies. Always unique, Michael's guitars are a breath of fresh air in the very conservative world of Selmer guitars. His willingness to experiment with materials, design, and aesthetics appeals to those looking for something different.
This beautiful Belleville model features a 670mm scale, 14 fret neck, 16" body, and a 1 7/8" nut. The top is aged fine grained spruce, the back and sides are Indian rosewood, and the neck is Honduran mahogany. This guitar also features rosewood binding, an ebony fingerboard, and "bridged" moustache pieces which reduce dampening.
This guitar is absolutely the best sounding Dunn I have ever come across! Very loud with thick mids and a rich bass register. Highs are very warm and rounded, resulting in thick single note lines and fat sounding chords.
Playability is excellent with easy playing 3mm action.
Although this guitar is over ten years old, it is in absolute mint condition! Ultra clean and could easily be confused with a new guitar.
This guitar is priced to sell! A new Dunn with these features would cost over $4000.
Includes DATT hardshell case.
This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
