About This Listing


The guitar listed for over $3000 with the extras I ordered.

This is a mint condition Dell'Arte gypsy jazz/maccaferri-style petit-bouche (small oval hole) guitar. This was custom-made for me by John Kinnard in San Diego. The top is solid sitka spruce, the back & sides solid Indian rosewood.

All binding is multi-ply dark/light/dark wood, with the outer layer in rosewood.

The neck was custom ordered in walnut like the original Maccaferri/Selmer guitars had.

The peghead features a hand-engraved Dell'Arte logo in the Selmer style.

The fingerboard is ebony, the frets are med/jumbo. There is a zero-fret, and the neck width is 1 7/8".

Included is the built-in "Big Tone" bridge pickup. No preamp is required...plug and play, and it sounds great.

The instrument is in perfect condition, finished in thin nitro lacquer with a slight tint to the soundboard to give it character. The walnut neck has a dark stain.

Included is a premium arch-top hardshell case. The guitar was never gigged. To sweeten the deal.

Compare this instrument to any of the import stuff and it's like comparing a Ferarri to a Smart Car! This is truly one of the best I've ever played, and blows away even nice guitars like Dupont!

Did I forget something? Feel free to write me.
