This guitar is an imitation of the famous Selmer. It is also available as a mouth MM10 D (Maccaferi imitation). The table is solid spruce, the back and wicker covers India rosewood plated handle cedro. Made in China, it has mcaniques cover (an innovation Selmer) appropriate but leave me wondering about their hard time. The varnish is orang dlicieuse which gives the impression of having a guitar patina with age. Note that it is book team of Argentina and the string table and back are bombs. Considering the price, the finish, which includes net is extremely sastifaisante. However, the tailpiece could probably be amlior low cost.


The handle is adjustable for a team available through the mouth. Ergonomics and Access in acute meet this type of guitar. The handle is enjoyable, not very pais unlike many guitars of this type that are fitted with a pickaxe handle. In addition, the low action makes the game sweet solo trs. However, for the rhythm, it would prefer a higher action.


The sound is trs correct, in view of the tariff. It offers a good reason and evokes the sound IMMEDIATE gypsy. It is also necessary to adapt his game (clean attack with a plectrum pais). A good point: the sound is not uniform and changes according to the attack. The power is good. The sound is particulirement envotante in mdiums and treble. It is a perfect instrument for jazz manouche in Premire a beginners guitar or an occasional guitar or other instrument to a specialist in style. (Selmer take his or her in an evening Favino beef, scared ...)


I use this instrument for three months. It is the ide that one has a gypsy guitar: a simple and low coteux, we dare leave home without fear.
I find this guitar suprieure the Rudy Larna on several points: it is most similar (the nets, the rose window, the shape of the head finer, the top and back bombs, mcaniques covers), it is also easier to play, even if the action is a little low for rhythmic muscle. Finally, the strings of origin are better. The guitar is the least I onreuse possde, but I find it really attractive, both in the game, the sound of Aesthetics. I would do without hsiter choice.
