    SOLD :O

    What would be nice is if the new owner lends it to someone to record an album or a few songs.

    He just may....he's that sort of guy! Either way, he's over the moon. This was about the best Selmer anyone could ever hope for. The tone is sublime...

    Good for him. He should be over the moon.

    That guitar was... how to put it.

    Yeah, um... No words. Not even going to try.

    Well, OK - here's one word that seems apropos... "Congratulations!"

    I played a guitar like this in Knoxville around 15 years ago. Is this that same guitar?

    It might be. There probably aren't many. Short scale with 12 to the body and a petit-style fingerboard without an extension giving you a total of 19 frets, so it's definitely transitional. It has the prettiest voice. I don't mean that as a backhanded-compliment-codeword for "not powerful". Far from that, it's plenty powerful and it sounds Selmer down to the bone. But the voice is also... pretty. It's pure & dark, but with some edge to it. I go back and forth on whether I should build one. I'd love to, but people can be such traditionalists on the expectation of scale & fret count. This is among the nicest sounding Selmers I've played, and it took, what, a year to sell? Though perhaps some of that is simply that the air is rarified when the price-tag goes into the upper echelons. It's not like every person you meet on the street could justify buying one regardless of desire to do so. I came close though. Second time that's happened. But at the end of the day, I don't play much anymore and it would bring me more joy to build it than own it - so - C'est La Vie.

    Definitely meddling with things that are none of my business, but if you think there is something special to this design, giving it a shot sounds like the way to go. You’re probably part of the very few luthiers that can (gently...) nudge players into new directions, on top of providing for established tastes...
