AJL XO, Dupont MD 50 or MD 50B?

Hi guys,

I am looking at immersing myself into playing gypsy jazz (have played other styles, rock/blues/jazz on electric/accoustic). I owned a Gitane D500, sold it a while back and would like to get back into that style with a good instrument.

I am looking for easy to play, not too trebly/banjo-esque but round with enough warmth. I am also looking for oval hole as opposed to D hole (I find the latter harder to play).

The 3 choices available are basically:
- AJL XO
- Dupont MD 50
- Dupont MD 50B

What would you guys say? My guess is a portion of this choice is a trade-off between established name (Dupont) and maybe better features for cheaper (AJL). Don't go saying that I am cutting down Dupont, I am simply assuming there is a markup associated to a Dupont.

Those are pretty classic model and I am kinda looking for pointers as I will most likely buy online. Not looking at more expensive as I am already stretching my budget, but I want a nice keeper, as opposed to a starter one, so not looking at cheap deal either. While fairly new to gypsy style, I have been playing guitar for a solid 10yrs.

Thanks!!!
