2017 Ari-Jukka Luomaranta 503XO

From the great Finnish luthier Ari-Jukka Luomaranta comes this gorgeous guitar in the tradition of Django Reinhardt’s original Selmer Maccaferri. Mr Luomaranta is considered one of the very finest builders in the world today for this type of guitar, and his instruments are in high demand everywhere. He builds using a slightly arched back and will make the back and sides of layered, figured Brazilian rosewood upon request, which this guitar has. The top is of extremely even-grained spruce, and the fingerboard and bridge are of course ebony. Interestingly, the underside of the bridge is hollowed out for a special timbre, a truly nice touch. The tones of this guitar are incomparable; bright, clear, and full throughput the entire range and incredibly strong. The action is beautifully set for fast smooth playing, and two spare bridges of differing heights are provided in the event you’d like to experiment. Condition is excellent-plus with only a few scratches, and there is literally no fret wear. It would be extremely difficult if not impossible to find another this nice. $3995 w/ohsc
