2013 Zwinakis Selmer Koa ***NEW PRICE!!!***
Peter Zwinakis is an experienced 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:

-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)

-Gorgeous Koa back and sides

-Highly figured 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 Deluxe Tuners

The sound of this guitar is open and complex, with a wonderful "bite" to the high end that really allows your leads to sing. Single note lines project beautifully with little effort, making this a wonderful choice for a lead player looking for more volume. Rhythm work sounds crisp and crunchy, with excellent bass definition and chords that are clear and precise.

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

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