Always wanted to learn how to play gypsy jazz. Looking for an affordable guitar. Anyone got anything?!?! The choices on Reverb.com are pretty slim.....please let me know as its a holiday gift to myself.
I've been playing for about 15 years and can get a decent gypsy tone out of an old simon and patrick acoustic I put silk and steels on.....but it's not a cutaway....and isn't the exact tone I was hoping for.
Seriously though, set a price you are comfortable with and don't go above that, there are more of these guitars our there than you think, if you can just be patient. I never have been, but maybe you can!
But I wanted to save up till mid december and maybe spend like 800-1000. Anyone got any leads? I've seen a few dell arte models go around that price. Are they worth buying? Or should I just go cheap and grab a cigano.....
Cj10 on Monday might be real cheap.......musicians friend with the coupon is 330 shipped
The small amount you'd save isn't worth it. Buy it from a reputable gypsy guitar dealer (like djangobooks). Or hold out until you find one you can play first.
Yeah if I can swing the setup special here from django books I'll probably do that.
Gotta pay the gypsy tax I guess haaha.
