Gérard Defurne Bartok 18" 7-String Archtop Guitar, 2007, EC

Made in Marseilles, 2007, Gerard  DeFurne Bartok 7 string Archtop, amazingly designed and crafted French  Master-makers Archtop. Features Solid mastergrade carved Alpine Spruce  top, solid carved AAAA flamed maple back and sides, one-piece Flamed  maple neck, Dark ebony fingerboard. This is a masterpiece in many ways,  the bracing is based on the famed 1930's Epiphone Masterbilt archtops,  making this modernistic style Archtop a respectful and excellent blend  of traditional design with minimalistic modern design. The detailing on  the guitar is masterful, the 'DeFurne' 'F' logo is found in every single  detail; first on the bound ebony peghead, but also in the handmade  ebony tuner buttons, the bottom of the multiple bound ebony fingerboard,  the carved ebony tailpiece, and if you look closely and think a little  alongside with Gerard, you even find it in the beatifully shaped heel  and on back of that amazing multiple layered headstock. Every detail on  this guitar shows french finesse and styling and breaths quality  including the masterly made ebony bridge, the nitrocellulose finish, the  Gotoh 510 tuners and that amazing Custom made Cedar creek Case. The ebony nut is polished in-outside to make strings glide easy for comfortable and precise tuning. This is not only a artistic  masterpiece, but also a magnificent instrument, that is acoustically  amazing as well. The soundboard  produces acoustically a very strong tone, that sounds matured, the  clarity and warmth are most appealing, and the general feel of this big  guitar is due to it's typical shape were the lower bout a bit more up to  the centre, comfortable. The 52mm neck width combined to the  comfortable low profile neck makes fingerstyle or gently picking easy. The Kent Armstrong humbucker is foating. 650mm Scale length,  60mm fingerspacing at the bridge. The instrument is in excellent condition with little playwear and a few minor marks in the finish primarily on the top and back. The instrument is supplied with a high  end custom made Cedar Creek case made to Gerard DeFurne's specification  for this unique Archtop. DeFurne guitars are highly appreciated but are  due to their rarity almost unseen on the used guitar market.
