I am a newcomer to gypsy jazz and I’m having lessons with a teacher. I’m enjoying it so far so I’m reaching out for advice on a guitar.
My research has led me to be lusting after a JWC model jazz or catania swing. But then again the Polak guitars are making me interested. I prefer the oval hole over the D hole. Another member here has kindly offered to let me try his JWCs.
There seems to be a fair few guitars on ebay and gumtree and one in particular is a Gallato 1939 Debarre. To be honest I’m a bit naive regarding gypsy guitars and my past record with buying acoustics has often been the more expensive does not always mean the best.
Basically, any advice would be appreciated.
