Maurice Dupont Guitars
Initially trained in Paris by the famous luthier Jacques Favino, Maurice Dupont first opened his own workshop near Cognac in France in 1981. Since then he has become one of the most respected luthiers in France. In 1989 the honour of “Best French Craftsman” was bestowed on him.
While first gaining a reputation for his classical guitars in 1986 Maurice made his first copy of a Selma-Maccaferri guitar. These Gypsy guitars have since become the leading product of his workshop and the popular choice of many of the worlds top guitarists including Bireli Lagrene, Raphael Fays, Romane and Marc Fosset.
Maurice DuPont has more recently installed a saw mill and wood seasoning space to store and age specialty woods for making an even more unique instrument found in his Veille Reserve models. Gypsy Jazz Australia aims to import these models eventually.
