#87, Selmer style for Michael Joseph Harris. Michael is a hard working pro in Baltimore who plays more gigs than anyone I know. He’s put Baltimore on the map for gypsy jazz by initiating a Monday night jam that has been running many years now, promoting the annual Charm City Django Reinhardt Festival featuring international stars, teaching, and so much more. This is the fourth guitar of mine for him and I’m so pleased he keeps coming back for more!

This one has a lutz spruce top, braced in the three brace pattern I now use most of the time. Arched back and sides are laminated with curly walnut for show. The neck is 670mm scale, Indian ebony fingerboard, nickel silver frets. Bridge is fully compensated out of Ebano and weighs only 8.7 grams! Tinted shellac and French polish finish (but of course!). Slightly aged Miller hardware. 10 gauge Argentine strings.
