This 1961 Saumer large 3/4 size “Migma” model is simpler in design, but similar in construction to the postwar Morelli model instruments made in the same factory for Pfretszchner. Plain figure Maple neck, back, and sides, fine grain spruce top, Brass halfplate tuners, new African ebony fingerboard, 10 mm steel rod endpin, ebony fittings, and Aubert Luxe bridge with adjusters, medium brown spirit varnish finish. The regraduated (revoiced) top and the reduced string length and modern over stand height from the neck reset have brought the performance level up to modern standards. Dimensions are: Top length 42 1/4″, Upper bout width 20 3/8″, Middle bout width 15″, Lower bout width 26″, Depth at neck 7 3/4″, Depth at upper bout corner 8 3/4″, Depth at tail 9″, string length $41 3/4″. A very powerful and balanced voice. A fine performance jazz or arco instrument in a budget price range. With cover.

Price: $5,350
