Update 6/15/2019: 


CB #59, f hole.   DiMauro pattern body, about 3/8″ wider than Selmer.   Lutz spruce top, walnut back and side, satin finish   Walnut neck, Ebano fingerboard, stainless frets, 670 scale, Miller enclosed tuners.   CB designed and fabricated tailpiece.    This guitar sounds great acoustically and can easily accept a magnetic pickup  in either a putty for daily removal or semi-permanent  “suction tape” mount   I have Krivo and Rhythm Chief pickups ready for installation, but there are many options that will work on this guitar.      Wire can be run internal to tail jack.   With a semi permanent mount and internal wiring, this becomes an ideal setup for the working pro who wants a gypsy guitar that is great both acoustically and plugged in.    $4,000 with hardshell case.    Pickup additional.

Here’s a video of Micheal Joseph Harris jamming on it at the Irish Pub in Maplewood, NJ after the Wednesday night Django a Gogo concert.

  1. Craig,

    This is a beautiful instrument. It has a rich tone and seems to be very responsive in the videos with Michael playing some very nice passages to demonstrate the evenness and clear tonal qualities throughout the range of the instrument. The sound is very well balanced from rich, dry bass to clear bell like trebles. Sweet!
