FROM FRANCE, CAFÉ AMÉRICAIN GYPSY JAZZ GUITAR

Brand new, the beautiful left hand Sabine model.

Welcome to the Classical-Workshop in beautiful
Arizona. Thank you for taking time to look at this excellent handcrafted Gypsy Jazz guitar from the workshop of Café Américain.

This is their beautiful left-hand 2014 model Sabine Bouche Ovale (O-mouth) guitar for the left-handed player who wishes to play Gypsy Jazz.  The workshop only makes a few left hand models at a time and we are very happy to bring these to our customers.  It is however the last left hand guitar we will have for quite a while.... the workshop is sold out for the year.... it is the only one we have been able to get.  It is superb, a beautiful Gypsy Jazz guitar.

Gypsy Jazz evolved in Europe in the 1930s when French Django Reinhardt, playing a Maccaferri/Selmer guitar in smoke-filled Paris clubs, combined his Gypsy guitar playing style with the jazz of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington producing a wonderful and inventive new form of music, Gypsy Jazz; also known in France as Jazz Manouche.

Today Jazz Manouche is played worldwide, the tradition lives, and is enjoyed by guitarists everywhere.

Café Américain is a small French workshop that produces only a few hundred guitars a year, their guitars are well made, sound excellent, and are easy to play.

This guitar is a full size 670 mm scale instrument, with a deep 4 inch body, measuring 40.5 cm across the lower bout.  It comes with the 23 and 2 half-fret fretboard with a 14th fret neck-join at the body, this allows for both rhythm and aggressive lead playing.  It's D-mouth design is as the original French Maccaferri-Selmer guitars.

Beautiful slim neck, with a fast action, a driving sound, with a big cutting tone you would expect from a Gypsy Jazz guitar.  Beautiful looks and distinctive Gypsy Jazz sound the guitar is for the player who wants to play Swing or Jazz Manouche.

The soundboard is solid Canadian Red Cedar, and the back and sides are a beautiful well-figured Indian Rosewood (which accounts for the excellent full rounded tone.)  Drive this guitar and you can get a great cutting sound or pull back and it will respond with a mellow tone.

The fret-board, floating mustache-bridge, and fret-head are made of Rosewood, and has a felt-padded brass tail-piece.


The guitar also comes with the well padded, Café Américain case shown in the pictures, plus I will include sheets of Gypsy Jazz music both in TAB and standard notation.

A little about  myself, I spend my summers in France, firstly attending in Spring the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, (Europe’s largest music trade-show,) to meet guitar makers and see their instruments.  Then I am fortunate enough to travel
Europe going to music festivals and guitar workshops looking for guitars.
