US $.3000 Jean-Marie Fouilleul cedar 2002, Ithaca, NY

Post by Andy Culpepper » Tue Apr 05, 2016 12:01 am

Hello all,
This guitar is a powerful instrument, with a tone that I consider typically French. Very lush, with surprising volume and a full-bodied, supported tone.

The French polish on the top was touched up by myself, mostly because it had a pretty nasty scratch, which you can see on the bass side of the upper bout, above the rosette. It's now filled and leveled off, and the shellac was refreshed all over, removing most of the stray nail marks.

The guitar has one crack in the soundboard which was expertly repaired years ago and has remained stable. It's just behind the bridge as you can see in the picture.

Very nice tone with strong trebles, but not piercing. Indeed ver much "a la francaise", my Dominique Delarue cedar sounds similar. Good luck for the sale.

Since no one seems to be breaking down the door on this, I decided to let it go for $3600.

I have a weak spot for cedar and an empty wallet after buying the Della Guistina. Very nice look and sound.

Very melodic sounding, a nice combination of guitar and player. Am curious what is the name of the piece he is playing?

Hi Andy,

Can you verify this dimension please? Isn't that an unusually wide spacing?
