Anyone know why Raphael Fays now only plays nylon string guitars, vs. gypsy jazz ones?

    It has to do with his leanings toward flamenco music. He has created a technique with his plectrum to mimic things that they do with their picking hands. It's really remarkable to see in person. When I got to spend time with him last year, the things he could do with a plectrum that mimics the traditional way of playing that music was incredible. The guy always had his guitar with him, even during coffee and breakfast.

    I got one of his CDs in early 2000s, and in it, in his bio, it also states he plays flamenco, but he still played GJ guitars then. I'm also wondering why he made the switch, considering, the clips I see him playing a nylon, are all standard GJ stuff.

    On that note, this guy, used to play flamenco with a pic and fingers, some 15 years ago, with fantastic results, but he seems to take most of the clips of him doing it down unfortunately, here's two clips left
