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.

#DidYouKnow that the Serbian gusles that are made from maple wood often have two strings instead of one?
The gusle was very popular in the Balkans and in the Dinarides region in southern Europe. In fact, it has been said that the gusle was played in the court of King Stephen.
