Just completed a new petite bouche Zazou.   Torrefied spruce top, birdseye maple back and sides.   Butternut and walnut neck, Ebano fingerboard, nickel silver frets, Miller enclosed tuners and tailpiece.

A new Zazou for Samuel Farthing.   Sam spec’d the round soundhole and rosette attributed to Roger Chaput’s Selmer #575 (1942), the color and the aged hardware.   Sam is such a great player and his smile says it all!  Iphone video of Sam and Matt playing Webster


The guitar is Selmer size with a torrefied sitka spruce top, five brace late Selmer style.   California hedge row Claro Walnut back and sides, Pennsylvania Black Walnut neck.   Ebano fingerboard and bridge.   The rosette is mother of pearl and ebony.   670mm scale with nickel silver frets.   Miller enclosed tuners and Miller tailpiece, both aged a little in vinegar fume.   The coloring is sprayed tinted shellac.  Finish is 100% French polish with traditional shellac.
