2011 Zwinakis Selmer

2011 Zwinakis Selmer
Peter Zwinakis is one of the top American luthiers in the Selmer Maccaferri tradition. Based in 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:

-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)

-Highly figured Madagascar rosewood back and sides.

-European walnut neck.

-Lacquered interior (another Flagship feature)

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

-670mm scale

-Ebony fingerboard

-Dupont DR Tailpiece and Schaller tuners.

Playability is excellent with 10 gauge Argentine strings and 3.2mm action.

The tone of this guitar is crisp and clear, with wonderfully singing highs and a forceful, defined midrange. Its voice is evocative of the refined sound of late period Selmers from the late 40s and 50s. If you're looking for a guitar that will allow your leads to easily be heard, than this is it as it this instrument creates a lot of volume with very little effort.

This lightly used instrument is in excellent condition. There is some light pickwear on the top as well a couple of dings, most notably on the binding of the lower bass bout and on the top of the headstock. Otherwise, it is like new. There is a strap pin installed in the heel and an endpin jack as well (there is no pickup installed.)

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
