    Palm Guitar burnt down, so you'll have to find your way to Soren's house, though his garage is full of stuff. I would check out the Facebook Gypsy Jazz Market or something, as he didn't have much in the way of gypsy guitars last time. Depending on your price range, Rino Van Hooijdonk makes some great guitars for a pretty low price considering.

    When you go to you can learn that Soren Venema passed away unexpectedly.

    Hey @JGM,

    Not too sure on this, but reach out to Tessa Spaaij She has a web store project, and is based in Amsterdam. Some solid guitars at reasonable prices considering what they are:

    That sucks man, two of recent news of passings of people associated with the genre both came from Holland. First Ger Boonstra and now Mr Palm.

    I'm happy to hear these two are running their own business. I really like some of their duos in YT. Their heart is really into it, they've played this music for many years now.
