1945 Maccaferri-Di Mauro Modified

Sold recently > Di Mauro > Antoine Di Mauro

I sold this guitar to a lucky new owner at the end of 2012.
Some guitars have really a story. This one was born as a real Maccaferri, made by Mario Himself, and it was destroyed during WWII.
It was almost entirely rebuilt by Antoine Di Mauro in 1945, at the end of the war. Look at the top and back bombé. This guitar has an exceptionnaly good sound.

This is the condition in which I bought this Maccaferri guitar, modified as a 12 frets by Antoine Di Mauro in 1945. You can see clearly that the original 14 frets fret board was used by Di Mauro, and also you can see the spot on the top where the moustaches were as a 14 frets. The neck had too much curvature so my luthier Sylvain Courcelles placed two carbon fiber rods to straighten it.

This is the guitar, restored, with a new rosewood fretboard.
