Just curious. With the rise in availability of modern Selmer/Mac style guitars, what are your thoughts on the older vintage instruments found, for example, on Jacques M.'s site. Are there many 'vintage gypsy guitar collectors' out there, aside from the interest generated by orig. Selmers and some Favino/Busatos? When looking at a guitar in the $2-4000 range, are you tempted by the older Anastasios and DiMauros in light of the Dell Artes, Parks and Duponts? This is curious to me because of the collectability/awareness of older archtops/teles/strats in the US -- perhaps the collectors of vintage 'gypsy instruments' have yet to hit their stride? I realise that the older GJ instruments aren't that numerous to begin with, but it seems that so many players here opt to have guitars built for them, or at least purchase new or newer hand built instruments as a next step beyond Gitanes, etc., instead of going the route of purchasing vintage ones.
