With Bastille Day earlier this week we thought we’d make our favourite Frenchman, Maurice Dupont, setting up a Volante Double Bass our #ThrowbackThursday post – enjoy!
As visitors to our showroom know, we tend to stock a range of guitars from our luthiers. However, the only way you’d get to try one of these it to order one as they are only made to order and even Maurice Dupont doesn’t have one to try off the shelf.
Did you know that our master luthier Maurice Dupont spent his free time playing rugby when he was younger? The thief who lifted one of his guitars at a Samois festival a few years ago certainly does having been tackled by Maurice
In fact he continued to play rugby into his 30s. It’s hard to believe that such a talented craftsman played such a physical game. He is pictured here with the ABJ currently in our showroom. Click here for details.
