Just a quick question. Very soon I'm gonna be buying a decent gypsy git, and looking around I noticed its impossible to find anything other than gitane guitars around here. Nothing high end, and I'd like to try before I buy. A trip to paris is possible... but in all honesty I would much rather avoid, especially since the cost of the ride itself could turn out to be more than the guitar.
Is there a decent store anywhere (the closer to rome the better) that sells gypsy jazz/selmer/maccafferi guitars?
And while we are on the subject, and seeing as I am also a mandolin player, were is there a decent store that deals in all things mando? Hopefully including bluegrass/archtop mandolins?
Thanks in advance.
