Hello all, I am in the market for a used 1000-1500€ petite bouche, and still very open to go and try all those that I can… Selmer Style, Favino Style…
I like a big chunky neck, so traditional style is a plus and I am very attracted to the Castelluccias. They are rare on the used market but one has appeared a 30 min drive from where I live: an old model no longer produced and on which I've found next to no information:
Do you have any experiences with this guitar, and any idea how it relates to the current models ("Tears", "Nuages", etc…)? Besides, there is a used Dupont MD100 of same vintage and same price also pretty near to me – I've read good and bad about this model, and I wonder how you would compare the two.
I know: "go and try them", and I will, but first hand information from knowledgeable players is a good way to go in prepared.
Thanks in advance for any insights you may have!
