2009 Michael Dunn Stardust

2009 Michael Dunn Stardust

Here is a wonderful short 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 Stardust model features a short 640mm scale, 14 fret neck, and a petite 15" body. The top is Adirondack Spruce, the back and sides are Sapelli (African Mahogany), and the neck is Peruvian Walnut. This guitar features beautiful Brazilian Rosewood binding, head plate, and fingerboard, a unique asymmetrical heel, Rosewood bridge with ebony saddle, Waverly machine heads, and "bridged" moustache pieces which reduce dampening.

The small dimensions of this guitar are particularly well suited to those who are uncomfortable with larger Selmer type guitars.

Don't let the small size of this guitar fool you, it's got projection galore! Michael Dunn has said to me many times that the smallest guitars are often the best, and this fine example readily supports that theory. It is very loud but not harsh at all. It has very lush, thick mids that make your leads sound thick and complex. Chords have a wonderful richness that really comes out when playing chord melody pieces.

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