1940's Selmer Model 14 fret
Petite Bouche "Egg Shaped".. with the" Cité Griset" white label on the neck block.. 680mm scale..!!! the longest anywhere..!! Selmer size, but 1cm shallower.. laminated rosewood back and sides..solid spruce top..solid mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard.. this guitar was likely made right after the War..
it came with the crummiest tuners and tailpiece, and the top was "assembled" with several pieces of spruce, as I imagined the supply of wood was thin from years of war..
considering that it was an "accepted practice", they gave those pieces a name.. "Chanteaux"..the guitar is outfitted with Schaller gypsy tuners and a Busato replica tailpiece..it was also refretted, so now the playbilty and action are perfect.. barkier and more compressed than others, this guitar wants to be played..!!! NHSC $9,500.00
