2010 Selmer Replica

2010 Selmer Replica

This is guitar is nothing short of a dream come true! A 2010 Selmer guitar built with meticulous adherence to the original 1940s models. How is this possible? Here is the story:

In honor of Django's 100th birthday (January 23, 2010) the Selmer corporation had the idea to reissue 10 more Selmer guitars. They approached one of the most accomplished luthiers in France and had him build two prototypes. The first one, #881, is now owned by Bireli Lagrene. This one is the second prototype which is #943.

Selmer was very impressed with these replicas but in the end decided it was too much trouble to get back into the guitar business after all these years.

No detail was overlooked in the construction of this guitar. Hardware, label, headstock logo, woods, bracing, binding, etc are all indistinguishable from the originals (See the comparison photos, replica #943 is on the left, original vintage #863 is on the right). The guitar features Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Spruce top, and a Walnut neck. The top has a real pliage just like the old Selmers do. This guitar was also skillfully antiqued to give it the look and feel of 1940s era Selmer.

And the question that everyone want's to know the answer to, how does it sound? The answer is AMAZING!!! You won't find a new guitar that sounds more like a real Selmer. Fantastic projection and the tone is dead on Selmer. Gently rounded highs, warm midrange, and present, growling lowend that adds dimension without muddiness.

Here's a chance to own a piece of history at the fraction of the price that vintage Selmers go for! This instrument sold new for $10K, it has been discounted nicely so it's a great bargain for a guitar of this quality.

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