Moustache (Thijs van der Harst) is a well-established luthier from Holland. He is known for his fine stringed instruments and his attention to detail. For over twenty years Moustache has been focused on producing mainly gypsy jazz guitars, and it shows. The last couple of years Thijs has expanded into Mandolin and Mandola production; the perfect medium for his exacting craftsmanship to shine through.
Thijs is also regularly seen at his instrument stand on the island of Samois-sur-Seine during the Django Reinhardt festival.

This guitar is called “SE Basic”. This is the basic Selmer model which was made legendary by Django Reinhardt. This guitar has been played a lot and the tone has matured greatly.
A bigtone piezo pickup has been built in by the Dutch luthier Ger Boonstra. Ger was known for being the best at installing bigtone pickups and making them sound as natural as possible. He did his typical excellent work on the pickup in this guitar, making it a simple plug and play gig situation with no worries of volume requirements or feedback.
