Hi Gipsy jazz fans!
Thanks for all the information found here regarding Gipsy Jazz guitars and passion for it!
I've been in Paris recently and found an intriguing guitar, which maybe a Castelluccia D Hole done for Paul Beuscher in the 50s, basically checking in the descriptions done by Craig Bumgarner: It has a thick top in excess of 3mm, maybe 3.5mm, the fretboard width is 47mm at the nut, it has the yellow tuners from Delaruelle. And is pretty bowed needing a truss rod and a new fretboard and probably bridge. I would like your help in finding out three things:
1.- if it is really a Castelluccia or from other luthier?
2.- Which kind of wood would be better for the fretboard and bridge : Rosewood or ebony?
3.- Would you recommend to install the truss rod pointing back at the headstock or better inside the body?
Here are some fotos of the guitar.
Many thanks and happy playing!
