Gypsy Guitars, One at a Time


Model Zazou.....

Model Zazou is modeled after Henri Selmer petite bouche guitars of 1940s.    My version has a strong voice like my other models, but the tone is more complex.  The sound is focused, balanced and projects well.   My Zazou is characterized by the following construction detals: 

  • Selmer body size and profile
  • Spruce, torrefied spruce or cedar top with genuine heat bent pliage
  • Bracing ala 1940s Selmer
  • Petite bouche sound hole
  • Laminated back and sides with walnut, mahogany or koa veneers
  • 670 Scale,  14 frets to the body
  • Walnut, butternut or mahognay neck,. 
  • Rocklite Ebano fingerboard. 
  • Nickel Silver or Evo Gold frets

  • Dual action truss rod
  • Side fret markers, surface markers per request
  • Ebony, blackwood or Ebano bridge & mustaches
