Notes: Antoine Di Mauro was part of the mass emigration of master Sicilian luthiers like Busato, Oliveri Anastasio, etc. who left Catania in the early 20th century. In the 1930s Di Mauro setup a
shop in Paris that he moved a few times and quickly adapted skills to making jazz guitars in the Selmer Maccaferri style. Like Maccaferri, Di Mauro had built classical guitars and mandolins
before. Notable players include Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, Henri Salvador, Sacha Distel Pat Matheny, Django...
Di Mauro guitars were produced continuously until the early 90s, first by Antoine and then later by his son Joseph
