2010 Zwinakis Selmer
Peter Zwinakis is now retired from lutherie, but during his building career he was known for his 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:

-Heat bent pliage European spruce 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. Normally only found on flagship models like the Dupont VR)

-European walnut neck.

-Lacquered interior (another Flagship feature)

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

-670mm scale

-Ebony fingerboard

-Solid Indian rosewood back and sides

Playability is excellent with 10 gauge Argentine strings and 2.8mm action.

This slightly used example is just a few small scratches and dings away from being in mint condition. Nevertheless, it has been discounted considerably, making it one the best deals in the shop! It's very rare to find a guitar of this quality for less than $5K. Furthermore, Peter is now retired, making this a rare and collectible example of this beloved California luthier.

This guitar is one of a series of instruments that Peter did not put labels on, hence it has no serial number.

All in all,  a fabulous guitar for a price far below what most luthiers charge for fine work like this.

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