Selmer Guitars

Ian uses original Selmer guitars 142, 507 and 861 in his performances and recordings. These are the same brand of guitar that Django Reinhardt played and have a great sound for gypsy jazz. Ian and Nigel also use superb Selmer copies made by luthier Piers Crocker from Sydney. Click on the photos for a larger view
