Castellucia f-hole SelMac

March 5, 2008

Nicolai Foss

The DiMauro “Chorus” model (here; scroll down) is a beautiful and famous hybrid between the f-hole archtop and the SelMac. I had no idea that Parisian builder Castellucia had produced a somewhat similar hybrid guitar. Here it is. It is more akin to a traditional jazz guitar than the DiMauro relative; notice the Epi tailpiece and the more conventional f-holes. Palmguitars also has a Castellucia f-hole (and they had a DiMauro “Chorus”).
