  • Does STochelo still own it I wonder or did he sell it and is borrowing it back

    He did have it up for sale.

    I thought he only owned #504? Which he sold in 2010.

    Buco is right. Selmer 607 is owned by a luthier in Paris iirc. I also heard there is a replique that they use when touring, instead of using the guitar from the recordings ..

    Anybody knows who made the copy? Eimers... Barault?

    Maybe the same luthier who owns the Selmer guitar, Béranger Griot (?)

  • Hi Folks,

    a little update and some answers about Selmer #607.

    It is now owned by Eric Fournier, a gypsy jazz guitarist and vintage guitar lover in Paris. He bought it from Beranger Griot a few years back.

    We just released a video about the guitar where we went to specialist Francois Charle (who wrote "The story of Selmer Maccaferri guitars" book).

    We talk about Selmer guitars in general in the video, and more precisely the #607.

    You can see the video on the Selmer #607 facebook page here :
    https://www.facebook.com/selmer607jazzmanouche
    English subtitles should be available in the video options.

    We are trying to fund the recording of the third album through a crowdfunding campaign, here is the link :-1:https://www.kisskissbankbank.com/en/projects/selmer-607-jazz-manouche

    I have yet to translate the page, but I hope to do it sometimes next week.

    Cheers !

    Thanks Andre!!

    PS I so want to back the project but hate creating yet another Internet account... I'll get to it I promise. 70th anniversary is not a small thing.

  • Hi Buco,

    thanks for the support, I'm pretty sure you can "Connect with Facebook" on the crowdfunding website, if that suits you.

    Cheers.
