1950s Di Mauro gypsy jazz guitar with f-holes
Gypsy jazz guitar wasn't all about Selmer and Maccaferri. Here's a gorgeous 1950s gypsy jazz guitar with f-holes made by Joseph Di Mauro (the Elder). Check out that rich patina on the spruce top and birdseye maple sides. It's a very classy guitar with bags of period character. You can just imagine the life it might had led playing tunes late into the night in smokey French bars.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of US $5,499.
