Here is a wonderful short scale D 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 Mystery Pacific model features a short 635mm scale, 14 fret neck, and a 16 1/4" body. The top is sitka spruce, the back and sides are satinwood, and the neck is Honduran mahogany. This model features a Maccaferri inspired resonator, Spertzel tuners, Ebony strap peg, and a compensated ebony saddle.
The tone is rich and complex with a very thick midrange. It is especially nice for solo chord melody playing and rhythm.
The condition is very good and looks almost new. Only small signs of wear: just a few very small scratches and dings. There is a velcro strip that was glued one near the endpin which was probably used to secure a preamp at some point. Otherwise the guitar looks really nice and has no issues.
This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
