1940's Moyen Modèle # 43

Known as the "Moyen Modèle"..Petite Bouche "Egg Shaped".. with the " Cité Griset" white label on the neck block.. 680mm scale..Selmer size, but 1cm shallower.. laminated rosewood back and sides..solid spruce top..solid mahogany neck with ebonized fingerboard.. this guitar was likely made during or right after the War.. it came with the crummiest tuners and tailpiece, and the top was made 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 Delaruelle Busato replica tailpiece..it was also refretted, so now the playabilty and action are perfect..the back of these are "thermo-formed" and not braced, so they are stiffer and produce an even barkier and more compressed sound than the others.. creating the distinctive in your face kinda voice.. this guitar wants to be played..!!!
