Model - "J'Attendrai"

Model "J'Attendrai" - short scale 14-fret

Quite many of us have seen this only video clip where Django plays french tune "J'attendrai" with Grapelli in backstage with rhythm section playing cards, then movie continues and the band is playing on stage.

The guitar that Django plays on this movie is quite rare, actually I don't know or haven't heard any other vintage Selmer found with this combination of oval hole and shortscale -with 14 fret neck !! -It seems to be transition period guitar with 640mm fingerboard just moved to have neck joint on 14 fret, -which means that bridge had to be moved too

It's now reproduced. It can be ordered with same wood options, also as VSOP and XO version with same price as any other oval hole-model. Instead of 48 - 60mm on short scale neck dimensions it has more confortable 45-57mm shortscale neck dimensions

It feels really confortable to play because it feels so short ! - It's soft and sensitive with Argentine 010s and really powerful with 011.
