Hi everyone. I'm starting to shop around for my first gypsy jazz guitar and can use some advice. I plan on studying rhythm playing almost exclusively. I've heard two opinions so far, both from very experienced players:
1. When playing rhythm, you have to be very careful with an oval-hole guitar with regards to acheiving a good tone. With a D-hole, a good rhythm tone comes more naturally.
2. I should get an oval-hole guitar because they have the extended range and I'll want that if I choose to take a solo.
Contrasting opinions. What are everyone's thoughts. Thanks in advance. - Greg
