I'm planning on buying my first gypsy guitar soon- either a 12 fret D or a 14 fret oval. I understand the tonal differences between a D and an Oval as well as how the sound projects. If I am to own only one guitar, --- Is having 12 frets vs 14 frets a real limitation?
Is there any advantage of having 12 frets over 14 frets?
And the shorter scale of the 12 fret is handy for long stretches.
You can probably get a D-hole in both versions but I`ve never seen a twelve fret Oval.
