Stefan Hahl ’’Night Wind’’ 2008 Deluxe Gitano Oval Hole Guitar (60 yr Aged Spruce Top - 60 yr Aged B
This 2008 Deluxe Gitano by Stefan Hahl represents the ultimate in contemporary Selmer guitar design. Most builders today obsessively try to replicate the design and building techniques of "golden era" guitars like the original Selmers, Busatos, and later Favinos. Hahl has dared to be different by using the Selmer design, which he has studied extensively, as a starting point for something new and unique. His guitars characteristically combine the complexity, warmth, and listenability of archtops and flatops with the punch and clarity of Selmers. The real genius of his work is that he has succeeded in making a contemporary, sophisticated sounding Gypsy guitar without loosing the essence of the Selmer sound. Others have tried to make such a guitar, but the end result is that warmth and complexity are traded for clarity and punch, which results in a very muted and dull sounding guitar. Not so with Hahl. His guitars produce notes with a rounded, satisfying tone but are still springy enough to shoot out of the instrument in volume challenged situations.

Hahl's work has been well received by the very finest Gypsy guitarists today. Most notably, by Bireli Lagrene who owns three Hahl guitars and has used them on most of his recent recordings. check out: Move, Just the Way You Are, To Bi or Not to Bi, and Live in Paris.

Gypsy legends Dorado Schmitt and Hono Winterstein also play Hahl guitars.

Hahl generally uses some of his finest woods for the Deluxe model. Most commonly 40 year aged woods. But this unique Deluxe guitar was bestowed with his very, very finest woods! The 60 year old spruce top and 60 year old Brazilian rosewood are normally reserved for his Super Deluxe model (starts at ,0000). Additionally, the wood used on this guitar is from the very same tree as Bireli Lagrene's personal guitar!! So this guitar is a fantastic bargin...best woods for less...

  • 3-part neck of 30-year carefully aged mahogany with 50-year aged walnut core
  • First class ebony fingerboard with refined, round mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays
  • Black and white rosette and edge wood inlays
  • Solid rosewood fingerboard and body binding throughout
  • O-shaped sound hole: 670 mm
  • Rounded, D-shaped neck for excellent playability
  • Ebony bridge with two compensating bone inlays
  • Bone nut
  • Gold-plated tuning machines with ebony buttons
  • Brass tailpiece with ebony inlay
  • Finish: thinly applied nitrocellulose lacquer

The superior woods on this guitar are not only gorgeous to look at, but also give the guitar a complex, refined tone that younger woods lack. The only other new Selmer type guitar that has such exquisite woods is the Dupont Vieille Reserve.

This guitar, which was dubbed the "Night Wind", has a stereo Bigtone pickup system. Hahl installed one of our DjangoBooks deluxe bigtones in the bridge along with an additional piezo pickup under the top. The two pickups are fed into a stereo end pin jack. I tested this system and it works very well, with the two pickups balancing each other nicely for a full, satisfying amplified sound.

One of Hahl's innovations is the use of a bone saddle. He includes several saddles of different heights which allow you to easily change the action on your guitar. Ingenious!
