Our goal at Guitars ‘n Jazz is to find you the best possible instrument that not only matches your personal requirements and play-style, but is also a guitar that you enjoy playing and look forward to picking up.

We strive to price our instruments as competitively as possible in order to give our customers the best possible value for their dollar. And as a guitarist myself I would never sell an instrument that didn’t live up to my own high standards and expectations.

All of our instruments are thoroughly inspected, tested, professionally set up, and carefully packed for shipment. And all instruments are sold with our 72 hour satisfaction guarantee.

We encourage you to call us for the best price possible. We routinely have demos, closeouts, blemishes, and used instruments available for purchase. And if you happen to find a lower price please let us know.

And please keep in mind that it’s difficult comparing various instruments on the Internet. Since many of our guitars come standard with upgraded woods and tone controls shopping by price alone won’t tell the whole story.

Since our inventory changes so frequently it’s best to call us to find all of your available options. With over 500 archtops in stock you can be assured that we have unbelievable guitars to fit any budget.

Michael Dunn’s Mystery Pacific is styled after and inspired by Mario Maccaferri’s Grande Bouche guitars built by Selmer in the early 1930’s

Product Description

Michael Dunn’s Mystery Pacific is styled after and inspired by Mario Maccaferri’s Grande Bouche guitars built by Selmer in the early 1930’s. This beautiful Mystery Pacific model features a short 25 3/16” scale, 14 fret neck, and a 16” body. The top is cedar, the back and sides are Indian Rosewood, and the neck is Mahogany. This model features a Maccaferri inspired resonator, Spertzel tuners, Ebony strap peg, and a compensated split bone/ebony saddle. The tone is rich and complex with a very thick midrange. It is especially nice for solo chord melody playing and rhythm. The volume does not decrease as one plays up the fretboard and the projection is remarkable.This example is Indian rosewood back & sides with a fir top.In order to accommodate a standard under-saddle pickup in a traditional seasonal Maccaferri style bridge – a removable standard saddle was fitted. As there is no room in the body cavity of the guitar for the plug-jack – an 1/8″ jack is installed into the wood of the tailpiece.This Gypsy guitar features a D-shaped soundhole and a 25 3/16″ scale length. It also sports Dunn’s internal sound chamber, which enhances the guitar’s upper frequencies. The front wall of the interior sound box is located on the straight side of the “D,” and the sound box has a hole that directs sound into the parabolic reflector.

Pricing and Availability (taken from Premier Guitar) Pricing is determined on a per-instrument basis due to custom specifications of each guitar. The base price of Dunn’s non-resonator custom guitars is around $4000. The models with interior resonators, such as the Mystery Pacific, Ultrafox, and OM guitars, typically fall between $5000 and $6000. The Bugatti model runs about $15,000, and the Cubist guitar costs roughly $10,000. Dunn builds around 15 guitars a year. Some of his Gypsy-jazz models are available immediately. Otherwise, the availability ranges from six months to a year.
