I know this has been done to death - but I am about to order a GJ guitar and I am wrestling with the age old question - oval or D hole.
I have played a few different instruments of both types, but can't make my mind up and of course I can't play the models for sale, since they are in very not local.
I am happy to hear any biased comments, and that can include Favino fans as well. This is a major purchase for me, and it is kind of scary. In deference to our host, I will say that this instrument is not offered on this site, and that is all I will say on what I am considering, OK?
I will say, it is my impression that most folks here play oval hole, and what I am considering is a long scale, 14 frets clear of the body model for either the oval or D hole. I am looking for a versatile instrument good for both rhythm and leads, and for many styles.
Thanks in advance!
