i have decided to buy a gypsy jazz guitar. i have read a lot in this forum and in the hotclub forum about guitars, but i still couldn't decide which one to buy.
i could spent at the most 1500 dollars. i heard that gitane guitars are relatively good for beginners, but i would like a handmade guitar.
unfortunately in my place (italy) i couldn't find any gypsy guitars, so i think i have to buy one from the internet.
which handmade guitars can you recommend?
i have found a dupont md nomade for 1500 dollars as well as an alves de puga for about the same price. are they remarkably better then gitane guitars? how are fontaine guitars?
or is it better to stay with factory build guitars at this price class? maybe a manouche?
what do you think about these guitars? http://cgi.ebay.fr/guitare-jazz-manouch ... dZViewItem
