    I played one Nomade, great crunchy rhythm sound, but very quiet, quietest GJ guitar i've heard actually. I know no 2 are the same and all, but that was my impression.

    Edit:

    played wonderfully by @rimm. You should ask rimm for a solo piece if you are considering.

    I prefer the Manouche to the Nomade. But as an FYI (hate that acronym), there are no fret markers on the Manouche, either on the body or the neck, bit of a bitch to get used to, and doesn't help when playing other guitars.

    Never played the Latcho Drom series but they sound good on Michaels videos,

    hope this helps,

    ..The Manouche hands down buddy. I have had mine for 5 years and the tone I am getting out of it now is so far impossible to match for 'la pompe'. Remember that Selmers were laminates to in most cases, and the Moreno model has that sound in spades. For the price its the best option- I fitted mine out with a Schatten pickup from Djangobooks recently and with a decent tube driven D.I box its the only time I have have been fully content with my sound. Just ignore the colour.

    There are fret markers, just not on the side.
