2009 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. Peter actually owned a vintage Selmer himself which he used as the basis for his excellent replicas. Entirely handmade in Peter's California workshop, 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:

-Mahogany 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

-Sound port on the upper treble bout

The sound of this instrument is powerful, rich, and quite modern. While it certainly has plenty of the old school "bark" that Zwinakis is known for, this instrument posses an exceptionaly rich and penetrating midrange. It's not overly sweet, but unusually full and balanced for a Gypsy guitar which makes it an excellent choice for someone looking for a more modern sound and/or a crossover guitar that works in other genres. I should also mention that it is exceptionally loud, and the soundport pretty well insures you will always be able to hear yourself.

Playability is astonishingly easy with 11 gauge Argentine strings and super low 2mm 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.

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