SIRO BURGASSI C.1939
A rare guitar built in the late 1930s by Siro Burgassi, one of the lesser-known figures of French-Italian origin luthiers based in France.
At the start of his career, Burgassi worked for Bortolo Busato’s instrument manufacture, namely building banjo necks. As a matter of fact, many other gypsy-jazz guitar luthiers started off working for Busato, among which Favino.
After his stint at Busato, Burgassi set up his own guitar-making business alongside Gino Papiri. Together, they build “SG” guitars, standing for “Siro and Gino” – Django is known to have played at least one of their guitars around 1933-1934. This guitar was built for and bears the label of Parisian instrument retailers Paul Beuscher, a well-established shop which still stands today at its original 1850 location in the 4th arrondissement of the French capital.
