2016 Geronimo Mateos Jazz A

2016 Geronimo Mateos Jazz A

Geronimo Mateos has long been one of the leading Selmer Maccaferri style luthiers in Spain. Based in Madrid, his guitars are played worldwide by such notably luminaries as Angelo Debarre, Tchavolo Schmitt, and Gonzalo Bergara. Angelo Debarre played a Mateos guitar on the CDs "Come Into My Swing," "Entre Amis," and "Memoires," (Tchavolo Schmitt plays one as well on "Memoires") and Gonzalo Bergara played a Mateos built guitar on the CD Porteņa Soledad. Some of his earlier instruments were rebranded as "Gallato" but were built in the same shop as this Mateos instrument.

The Jazz A model is a Selmer copy so it has all the specs you'd expect of a classic Gypsy guitar. The comfortable 15 3/4" body is constructed of highly figured palo santos and the 670mm scale walnut neck features a modern, ergonomic profile. The top is European spruce which has been tastefully tinted to give the guitar the look of a finely aged instrument.

This instrument possesses a warm, complex tone that is unusually rich and full in character. It doesn't have any of the brasher qualities that many Selmer type guitars typically have but is instead, well balanced and mellifluous in tone. These are exceptional qualities in any Gypsy guitar, but even more so in an instrument priced under $3K. If you're a player looking for great tone without breaking the bank, then this is it!

This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
