Reviews and Ratings


very nice

Buying from was a great experience, very customer friendly. my contact, Michael was extremity knowledgeable and always available to chat and answer questions. I was pleasantly surprised at the build quality and tone of this guitar, has a big loud gypsy style sound, Comfortable body size, Plays in tune up the neck Very nice finish and Beautiful craftsmanship Arrived with a nice hard case, This guitar sounds good unplugged and has a very decent loud sound, and also has Fishman/Aura electronics with different presets but, does not have tuner. Definitely need a string change to Argentine Strings Neck is very fast and no buzz, thanks to the Professional Gypsy Set Up, and fret level which was done for few extra bucks, worth every penny. Overall itâs a very nice guitar...

Sleek and Classy

Even with the thinner body, this guitar can produce a big acoustic sound. However, the thinner body takes some getting used to when you play with the gypsy âfloatingâ right hand. I'm not sure how the Fishman/Aura electronics work, but it looks like it does some type of modeling effect. There are five different modeling settings so it's like having five different Selmers. If youâre not used to the fretboard dot being on 10 instead of 9, donât worry, youâll feel comfortable with it after about a week. I suggest selecting the option for the special setup and fret level. I only had the professional gypsy setup accomplished, and there are a couple of frets on a couple of strings that buzz so I think the full fret level would eliminate that. I also suggest getting some looped strings and putting the leather under the tailpiece to mitigate any tailpiece buzz. Other than that, this guitar is a piece of beauty. Canât put it down.
