This guitar is the biggest steal of the year at this price. It is worth twice as much at least. I am killing myself that I don't have the money to buy it now. Noah Lit bought the last D-hole that I wanted as well. Lucky the person who gets it first. These guitars are unbelievably versatile to play, very sauve and with projection like nothing else.

2011 Shopis D'Artagnan Model S

2011 Shopis D'Artagnan Model S
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 Selmer style model is no exception, as it combines the superior projection of a classic Selmer with the tonal refinement of a modern guitar.

This instrument features solid Indian rosewood back and sides, a rare feature as most Selmer style guitars have laminate back and sides. This guitar is outfitted with a handsome set of closed Miller tuners with ebony buttons and a Miller tailpiece with ebony insert. The zero fret was tastefully decorated with an MOP inlay, which is further enhanced by the sleek and modern looking "dotless" ebony fingerboard. 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. The sound is also very open and complex, with an interesting wash of harmonics accompanying each note that you play. The midrange is particularly smooth and thick which really adds a lot of fulness to the tone. Projection is excellent, especially for single note lines which have the clarity and definition to cut through the din.

See the video below of the great Alsatian Gypsy guitarist Yorgui Loeffler playing this very guitar live in Montreal.

In the tradition of the original Selmer design, Rodrigo stabilized the neck using graphite strips in lieu of a truss rod.

This instrument is in near mint condition. The only signs of wear are are a few small scratches and dings on the top and back. The frets have just a slight bit of wear. Otherwise, it's indistinguishable from a new guitar.

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