1950 14 Fret Oval #866
This guitar was shipped to Leon Agel's Paris shop on Sep 20th 1950. In the Selmer log, on can notice several guitars sold through his shop, towards the end of production..
one caracteristic of the late production, is the solid rosewood neck, without the habitual grafted headstock. the "pliure" across the top along the bridge, is as strong as the day it was
built..no caving signs anywhere, no cracks anywhere..
just some playing scratches..at some point, the neck was reset, and the guitar refretted, following Selmer's method of rounding off the edges of each fret, and I just replaced the bridge, which will be darkened to match the moustaches..the playability is perfect, and the sound is tremendous..
