Hi folks, I have one of the infamouse Maccaferri plastic guitars that sounds rather good (for plastic) and though it has a lot of collector value, I never play. Before putting it up on e-bay (check my profile under yillbrillem to show I'm straight up) I thought I'd give notice here. For those with perhaps a few Selmer style guitars laying around this may be something to add to your collection. I never fails to get looks and comments. Neck and action is good. I would be willing to trade for one of the cheaper Gitane D hole or something similar, if you perhaps have upgraded, and have an extra Selmer type guitar laying around. (I've been looking at the maple DG-250M and will probably eBay this one and buy that model from this site if a trade doesn't pan out.)
Here's a link to the plastic Maccaferri from the National Music Museum (very interesting history) for those unawares: http://www.usd.edu/smm/PluckedStrings/G ... uitar.html
P.S. Just saw the John Jorgenson Quintet here in Floyd, VA... Yikes!!!
