Peter Zwinakis is an up coming luthier from the Bay Area. His work shows a sincere dedication to the Franco/Italian tradition of Selmer Maccaferri guitars. This fine example is the equal of many of the best contemporary European guitars but at a player's price.

First off, the features of this guitar are normally only found on the infinitely more expensive flagship models of luthiers like Dupont, Barault, and Hahl. Materials and construction techniques are of the highest caliber:

-Solid Brazilian Rosewood (yes, it's really solid which is normally a very pricey option).

-Real pliage top (the top was bent with a hot iron just like Selmer did it. Most Selmer copies today are forced top which generally doesn't have the projection and quickness of attack that the pliage tops have. Again, only found on flagship models like the Dupont VR)

-Curly Walnut neck with some gorgeous figure.

-Lacquered interior (another Flagship feature)

-The body is standard Selmer size (15 3/4")

-670mm scale

-Ebony fingerboard

-Vintage finish

The sound of this instrument is very rich, balanced, and rewarding. Those who find Dupont guitars too dry will delight in the slight touch of openness and complexity that this guitar has. The highs are rounded with an emphasis on body rather than cut. Mids are quite thick and beefy and the low end is robust without being muddy. The emphasis here is more on beauty of sound than pure volume. Although, it is by no means a weak guitar. But a Dupont would cut a bit more around the campfire whereas this guitar is more rewarding when the tone matters.

Playability is excellent with 11 gauge strings and 3mm action.

All in all,  a fabulous guitar for a price far below what most luthiers charge for fine work like this. It's basically a Dupont VR for a third of the price....

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