1961 French guitar, this guitar is bet the family hollow body of the line "Major" or "Royal" as references.
This guitar is made entirely by hand with a maple body, a rosewood and rosewood handle Alu 20 frets.
Micro RV Tonemaster handle with volume and tone.
Alu handle "naked" very pleasant to the touch that allows perfect sliding of the thumb, the rosewood fingerboard is very nice and not at all affected by the aluminum which has no effect on the sound.
The neck is thin enough and allows a high velocity with Zero Fret gives a lot of power notes "empty" with a very good access to acute.
Attention to musicians with "big" hands as the fineness of the handle may interfere to some agreements.
The shape of the guitar is very comfortable and it has a balance "round-corp" perfect.
Its level this guitar is versatile enough with the big difference between the electric and acoustic sound.
Indeed, in this acoustic guitar has a close to a gypsy guitar that allows some nice pumps and enough solos "vintage" sound.
In electric mode this guitar sound very round and warm Jazz 60's although with the snapping and biting through the maple body.
I use this guitar for 15 years (family inheritance) and it is very nice for its versatility, sound quality and originality with its aluminum handle and zero cargo.
The value for money is definitely perfect for this guitar may well compete with Gibson or Gretsch of his generation sold 2-5 times more expensive.
Unless you are forced to sell, this guitar is kept for life.
