Cognac, France, 2006
Alpine Spruce Soundboard, Indian Rosewood Back and Sides
Ebony fretboard with 650 mm string length
$ 5900 SOLD
This is the sixth concert guitar we've gotten from the famous French maker Maurice Dupont with whom we started working in 2000. The woods and the workmanship are, as usual with Dupont guitars, very fine. The tightly grained soundboard is lightly finished in lacquer and produces a bright clear tone that sings in the treble. The volume is strong throughout the entire fingerboard and the treble-bass balance is perfect. This instrument delivers an especially pure and lively tone that retains its resonance in gentle passages and responds evenly to the hardest attack.
