I NEVER buy instruments online... but, here in the middle of the Pacific there is no one who deals in the Gypsy type instruments. A friend recommended Michael's company and after a couple of emails and a phone calls, I took the leap. The guitar showed up and I haven't put in down in the two weeks I've had it. The set-up by Josh, the resident tech, is highly recommended. It looks like a pretty tricky set-up for the uninitiated tech. Thanks and Aloha to Mr. Horowitz and company.

I Love it!
I love this guitar! I ordered it with the gypsy set-up and higher quality bridge. It feels excellent and has a nice sound. I am getting a slight buzz up in the higher registers and have had to shim the bridge up a little bit (could be climate?). It seems to be built very well and looks beautiful! The case is great as well... I'm a sucker for green fur lining. Totally worth the money. I highly recommend the bridge swap that Djangobooks offers.
