My Dad is having a go at building a gypsy guitar for me.
It'll be my only chance to ever get one - chronically penniless as I am..
But he went and got plans for the WRONG one - the 'grande bouche' (eugh!! :D )
I don't want one like that - I want one like the one Django played..
He's in another country to me and it's hard to communicate with him as he seems to want to go his own way without hearing what I'm saying in my emails.. if I could only send him the correct dimensions (especially scale length, neck/body join position, bouts etc.) he might get the idea..
Anyway, I don't have any money so can't spend £50 incl. postage on this: (https://www.lmii.com/plans/3537-plan-1930s-selmer-model-807-jazz-guitar.html)
Can anyone please send me some measurements / dimensions / plans for a proper Django-style 'petite bouche' one?
I'd be most grateful!! :D
