2017 Dupont MC50B CUSTOM

2017 Dupont MC50B CUSTOM
Maurice Dupont has long been one of the most respected luthiers in France and one of the first contemporary makers to specialize in producing the Selmer Maccaferri guitar. Maurice first gained recognition as a builder of classical guitars and in 1989 was bestowed with the honor of "Best French Craftsman." Maurice was an apprentice of the legendary Gypsy guitar maker Jacques Favino, and in 1986 he began building his own Selmer style guitars which quickly became the most popular choice of professional Gypsy guitarists. Countless Gypsy stars including Biréli Lagrène, Sébastien Giniaux, Raphael Fays, Tchavolo Schmitt, and Romane have played Dupont guitars which appear on hundreds of recordings.

Dupont's Gypsy models are built entirely in Cognac, France by master luthier Patrick Redureau (since1994)  under the supervision of Maurice Dupont. The collective experience.of the Dupont team along with Maurice's stock of well aged, select tonewoods yields instruments of unsurpassed tone and playability.

The MC50B model is Maurice Dupont's tribute to the legendary Maccaferri design. It has a 12 fret neck and shorter 640mm scale length which allows for easy playability and a lush, warm tone. This custom ordered example features a 40 year aged spruce top (the same woods used for the top of the line Vieille Reserve model) and gorgeous Brazilian rosewood back and sides. A bigtone pickup has been installed.

Tonally this instrument is nothing short of heaven! It's full, thick tone produces big, warm chords and syrupy, flowing lead lines. These qualities make it a rhythm players dream, but it is also a surprisingly spunky lead guitar as well. If you're looking for a full bodied tone that is free of the strident qualities of the longer scale Selmers, then this instrument should make you very happy!
