The MD50 is the workhorse instrument of Gypsy jazz. It has the most
traditional Selmer like tone in this price range. Will give you all the
power and punch you need and has fantastic playability as well.
Traditional Selmer wood choices: French spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, and a walnut neck.
This is one of the best MD-50s I've had in a long time! The tone just screams vintage Selmer....very crisp with the sort of complex tonal character you'd expect from an instrument a half a century old. Yet, Maurice Dupont has found a way to make a new guitar that resonates with the beautiful and rare qualities of a fine vintage guitar. Bravo!
This guitar is a real player, setup with very low 2.5mm action. Your fingers will glide effortlessly over the frets. Lesser guitars loose their sound with action this low, but this outstanding Dupont is still crisp and precise. Rare I get one that is this smooth out of the box.
This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
