2013 Shopis D'Artagnan Model F LEFTY

2013 Shopis D'Artagnan Model F LEFTY
New York based Rodrigo Shopis has long been known for his deep knowledge of Selmer Maccaferri guitars and his ability to interpret this rich luthiery tradition in new and exciting ways. His innovative designs have caught the attention of many top players, including such luminaries as Samson Schmitt, Dorado Schmitt, and Biel Ballaster.

Rodrigo's guitars are never mere copies of the old French designs, but rather are adaptations of the classic instruments suited to the needs of modern players. This lovely D'Artagnan model is no exception as it seamlessly blends the large bodied Favino design with a unique bracing pattern, producing an instrument which delivers a rich, full bodied tone without the excessive midrange nasalness and challenging playability of older instruments.

This instrument features solid Indian rosewood back and sides, a rare feature as most Selmer style guitars have laminate back and sides. The walnut neck features a grafted headstock ala Selmer. This guitar is outfitted with a handsome set of closed brass Miller tuners and a brass tailpiece. This instrument was tastefully decorated with a half circle MOP embellishment on the zero fret. The wood has been treated with a very lightweight oil finish which is both attractive and acoustically efficient

The tone of this guitar is full bodied, with a tight, clear lowend and nice chimey highs that you wouldn't normally expect from a large bodied oval hole design. The sound is also very open and complex, with an interesting wash of harmonics accompanying each note that you play. Projection is excellent, especially for single note lines which have the clarity and definition to cut through the din.

This instrument is in near mint condition. The only signs of wear are a few deep scratches on the side near near the lower treble bout. Otherwise, it's indistinguishable from a new guitar.

It's extremely rare that I have a left-handed Gypsy guitar of any kind in stock, nevermind an exquisite handmade one such as this!

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