Hans De Louter / D-Hole Gypsy Guitar / 1992 / Guitar

Hans de Louter has been building guitars since 1986 and is mostly known for building Maccafari and Selmer style Gypsy Jazz instruments. This 1992 instrument by his hand uses the classic D-hole or "grande bouche" design which was shaped specifically to accommodate an internal resonator, an invention by luthier Mario Maccaferri. This resonator increases the volume of the guitar and evens out variations in volume and tone between different strings. Other appointments include the short 640mm (25 /16") scale length and 0-fret, Rosewood back and sides with a spruce top, C-shaped mahogany neck, ebony compensated bridge and tailpiece with Rosewood insert. Instruments like these typically show a decent amount of playwear and signs of use and this one is no exception, condition is still Very Good though with no cracks or structural issues, a great setup and ditto sound. Years of playing not only left it's marks in the finish, but also really loosened up the tonewoods. It sounds loud, fat, warm and quite punchy, just the way we like them. Noteworhty is also the endpin jack which does not seem to be attached to any working pickup currently. Included is a non-original hardshell case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
