2019 Geronimo Mateos Jazz B

2019 Geronimo Mateos Jazz B

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 B 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 bubinga 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 has an oil based finish which enhances the natural beauty of the wood and allows the body to resonate freely for maximum tone and projection.

The sound of this instrument is bold, with lots of character, especially in the midrange which growls wonderfully. It is somewhat open in tone, producing a dazzling array of colors that will spice up your chords and smooth out your leads. If you're looking for a classic sounding Gypsy guitar, than this meticulously made instrument will most certainly please you immensely!

A European handmade instrument of this quality is rarely found for less than $4000 making this instrument an exceptional value. The fact that the instrument is equipped with a piezo pickup only sweetens the deal. If you're looking for great Gypsy tone for less, this is it!

Reviews and Ratings



What can I say other than I love this guitar? It's beautifully crafted and the tone is wonderfully balanced. I had originally picked up an Asian made model and wasn't completely happy. Michael was very helpful and I decided to take the jazz b home instead. Couldn't be happier! Excellent value for a handmade European guitar.

I must say, this guitar is unlike anything I've ever played! I've owned the top of the line Saga instruments, and top of the line Altamira guitars...and I highly recommend them, they're great guitars, but this Mateos...it's alive!!! Thank u Michael. And not second to the guitar is the customer service afforded by Djangobooks.com. Please...just shooting the videos for each guitar alone must be a monumental undertaking. Then, maintaining a vast, comprehensive Gypsy inventory on top of it...writing definitive books on the style...come on...where else are u going to shop? Think about it?? This guitar only took 2 days to get to me and yet we exchanged 6 emails in the interim. THAT'S THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY! You can just ring him up on the phone!!! Unfathomable...thank u...customer 4 life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
