2021 CASTELLUCCIA DJANGO CASTEL OVAL HOLE
I am amazed at the value for money offered by Castelluccia guitars. Hand made by arguably the most experienced Gypsy Jazz luthier family in the world they offer features and quality rarely found in guitars currently available in Australia. Made with solid Indian rosewood the Castelluccia Django Castel is the perfect example.
The model Django Castel is named after Dgango’s classic tune Django’s Castle. This model stands out with its use of Solid Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, along with a solid Spruce top with just the right amount of pliage (curve), giving it the authentic features of a traditional Selmer. The solid Rosewood gives the Django Castel a depth of sound and a velvety feel that will continue to improve over time. The Castelluccia Django Castel is a beautiful instrument in every way.
This guitar is sold with a high quality polyfoam case with two-pull zipper (not a gig bag). This style of case is light, practical and offers the best protection for the long journey the guitar has to make. If you are wanting to upgrade to a hard case email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss other options.
All guitars are professionally set-up upon arrival from Europe.

At the end of the 1930’s luthier Jean-Baptiste Castelluccia met Django Reinhardt. Following his meeting with Django, Jean-Baptiste decided to specialise in making Gypsy Jazz guitars and quickly gained a reputation in Paris. The Castelluccia family is now the longest running Gypsy guitar manufacturer in France with a proud history of three generations and over 75 years of experience! No family has more experience making Manouche guitars. Since the beginning of the 90’s the grandson of Jean-Baptiste Castelluccia (also Jean-Baptiste), and continuing on from his father Jacques, has been proudly carrying on the family's instrument making tradition established in the heart of Paris. Some of JB’s guitars pay homage to the guitars made by his grandfather with aged woods and design features rarely found these days. Others come with a more modern feel and design. It was very difficult to decide which guitars to buy...I wanted them all! Castelluccia guitars are in high demand with at least four month waiting period...but good things come to....
