The Boogie Woogie model was Di Mauro's Maccaferri inspired instrument. It features a 12 fret neck, a 640mm scale, and a slightly larger 16 1/8" body. The top is spruce, the back sides are laminated maple. The fingerboard is rosewood. The binding is ebony which is decorated with 3 ply purfling. The Maccaferri inspired rosette features 14 black and white bands with a red center band. This example is particularly festive. The tuners and stylized Di Mauro tailpiece are original. The sound of this instrument is very warm, with a distinctive midrange focus. It is first and foremost a rhythm guitar and does that job exceedingly well. This guitar produces focused, full bodied chords that will fill out the sound of any Gypsy rhythm section. It also has a wonderfully cheerful, happy character to the tone. It's a little guitar with a big personality.
This guitar is all original, and in fine condition. No cracks, or repairs. The instrument does show normal wear and tear after more than 70 years. There are some deep marks in the lower body (see photos), which could be a name carved into the top ! It does not, however, affect the playability of the instrument.
