The only person who deserves this guitar is Bireli imo--hes stated a few times that he would love a Selmer--the thought of Eric Clapton getting it fills me with horror
frater - pardon the question from a fairly unsophisticated ear, but is it possible that the "classical guitar" sound might be what appealed to a guy who was more or less pioneering the steel string instrument (at least in Europe)? That is, Django (and his compatriots) favored the Selmer because it resembled the traditional instrument tonally, but had the power to be heard in the new venues?
Ya I wouldn't sell the 504 if I were stochelo ... but i'm not... and his reasons for selling it have nothing to do with music lol
It says on the Eimers website, "Some years ago famous blues guitarist and collector of guitars Eric Clapton was interested in buying this special Selmer. The deal was almost done when Stochelo decided to keep the guitar. Now it’s for sale again!"
