In the search for my first gypsy jazz guitar, which I will be using mainly for rhythm playing, I have the choice of either an Asian made Dell Arte Homage or the ubiquitous Gitane D500.
I will not be able to try either guitar before I buy, so I'm looking for opinions on tone, playability and build quality.
I don't have the largest hands in the world, so fretboard wideness could be an issue.
I tried a friend's Gitane D500 and the thickness of the neck was very nice, how does the Dell Arte compare to this.
From what I gather the Dell Arte Homage is sized a bit larger than usual Selmacs style guitars. Will it be a problem finding a case that fits?
