I have a new Delarue arriving any day, which is already pre-sold, but, I this lovely example from 2009 just arrived and at a very fair price too. I have found a home for this guitar before with a nice client of mine who shuttled back and forth between two homes, so he bought this a couple years ago to keep in one of his homes so as to avoid having to shuttle his treasured Humphrey Millennium back and forth. Recently however he consolidated to one home and so will only need his Millennium. So he asked me to find a new home for this Delarue.

The guitar is in excellent condition, no cracks, there were a couple marks on the top that the original owner had touched up, I took a photograph of those areas in the photo section below.

This guitar has the expected “Frederich” character that Dominique is so well known for, you may recall from prior listings that years ago the first Delarue I heard was while sitting next to David Tannenbaum listening to his students recitals, and I leaned over to him when one student was playing and said ‘is that a Friederich he is playing?’, David smiled and said ’no it is a Delarue’, and after that I immediately contacted Dominique and began offering his guitars to my clients, which I have been doing ever since.

A lovely guitar at a very fair price.
