1938 Bouche Ronde #448
This guitar is part of a batch of unfinished guitars that was left from the Maccaferri era.. the decision was made at the Atelier to complete the "left over" bodies and build them with a "simpler traditional" Round Hole Bouche..in the Selmer log it is marked as having been sold to a Mr Montreux (or sent to the city of) on 27/10/1938.
the guitar shows it's gypsy life..with several well repaired top cracks..it also has been refretted, and now plays like a dream.
It has a big open voice, broader sounding than the oval. only half a dozen have surfaced in all the years..it is truly a special guitar.. with an even more attractive price now.. NHSC $17,500.00
