    According to www.gypsyguitar.com this guitar (quote): "…belongs into the "Pantheon of Gypsy Players"... This is Roger Chaput's guitar ... everybody will wonder why on earth the "transformation" to a round hole.. why the "marquettry.. why the pickguard..?? Mr Chaput is no longer with us to answer these questions..he was the first and BEST Gadjo guitar player to play with Django.. he does have a place in that small Pantheon..a very elite spot along with Henri Crolla, Didi Duprat and Loulou Gasté... The guitar sounds and plays great..it is part of the 500 series guitars..where we find all the best sounding ones..and i am convinced that Roger Chaput went to the shop Place Dancourt to choose the one he liked...and this is it..as with the other ones, it has 4 tone bars instead of 5..could that be the one element that distinguishes them from other production..??. the neck was reset and the fingerboard refretted..so the action and playability are perfect.. Roger Chaput was a musicien and an artist... he was part of the primary scene, and so was his guitar.. (end quote)
