Hey everyone,

Long time, no see. I haven't posted on here for years, but if anyone still remembers me, here's a big ol' "HELLO"! Anyway, I'm selling off most of my Selmer style guitars as I'm only buying and repairing exclusively vintage instruments now and have ventured into playing other instruments...primarily banjo, mandocello, etc. As such, I have a couple of Selmer style guitar that at least someone might be interested Altamira M01F and a heavily used Gallato RS-39 "Modele Noir"...which very few of were ever made.

Here's a couple of links for anyone whose interested in either. I'm perfectly fine ending them early and selling outside of eBay if anyone is interested in doing that instead.

Altamira M01F:

Gallato Modele Noir:

Thanks for looking everyone, and nice to see you all again!

    Dang, that Gallato looks like it's got some stories to tell.

    Shawn! Nice to have you back! Stick around for a while!

    Posts: 296 certainly does! I've learned to be a bit more careful over the years...we'll just leave it at that...LOL!

    Lango, I certainly hope to. I've become obsessed with 5-string banjo playing lately. I've bought a couple old one's from the 1880's/1890's, strung them up with Nylgut strings, and I'm having more fun playing them than I have with any other instrument in a long time. Still love jazz of course, but playing old-time pre-Bluegrass songs on those banjos just soothes my soul like nothing else at the moment.

    I'm very interested. @Shawn do you have some listening recommendations for that kind of music. Thanks!

    Absolutely Rudolfo! If you're looking for more modern players of that style I'd recommend, first and foremost, checking out Clifton Hicks and Rhiannon Giddens. Clifton has probably been my biggest inspiration since starting the instrument. Here's his youtube channel:

    Rhiannon is absolutely wonderful. She's a beautiful woman and has a voice like an angel. I'd just look her up on youtube and listen to everything she has, but here's a few quick links for you. Here's the song that turned me on to this type of music:

    Here's her youtube channel:

    If you're looking for some older players of this type of music I'd recommend people like George Gibson, Doc Boggs, Roscoe Holcomb, and quite a few others of course.
