I have asked this question before, but I live in the St. Louis, MO (USA) area and there is only one gypsy guitar in a shop in the entire area.
It was Gitane D-500, it sounded nice and played pretty good except that
the action was not very good past the 7th fret (I realize that sometimes guitar need to be setup or re-setup).
Several shops will order a guitar for me, and online, there are several stores that will allow me to return the instrument within thirty days. Although, I have the privilege, ethically, I do not want to order and return and reorder if at all possible.
I can spend at least $1000 (I can buy Gitane DG-300 w hard case for $999). I was leaning towards a Jorgenson modele until this Lulo Reinhardt DG-310 appeared upon the scene?
I don't know that I want the thicker neck of the DAG-300? I like a trim neck but not excessively small ala some Fender models (I have owned Gibson L7, ES-175, L5 guitars) I like Gibson necks.
Actually, I could spend more that $1000 for a guitar. What is available past the Gitane in the next price range. I have only seen guitars for $2000 plus (actually closer to $2500) once I get past Gitanes?
