I have been a fan of Gypsy Jazz for a long time. To make it short: I have been playing the electric guitar for 12 years, mostly jazz/blues, I started collecting electric guitars and am looking to add a nice gypsy-style guitar to my collection.
I play all my instruments, so a pristine look is not something that has much value to my eyes. I am fine with a used condition, as long as it plays and sounds very good. I heard many things about Dupont Vieille Reserve series. Some say these guitars are the best (Bireli played it on a dvd, it sounded awesome, but again, what would not sound good in his hands..), some other say that he is an a&$%$^le and that the quality has gone down considerably.
What do you guys think? Is it possible to find these guitars in used condition? If yes, where? Any good alternative for 1 gypsy guitar of a lifetime.
