I asked the same question on Manoucheries, and I got some pretty interesting answers. I am curious to see what you guys think.
It's obvious that for several years now, the market of gypsy guitars has completely exploded for the traditional hand-made guitars and also for the later generations of more industrial / chinese ones.
It has been said so many times that any given guitar needs a couple of years to mature or "open", and that old woods / vintage guitars have wonderful qualities.
So what about the Gitanes or Gitane-inspired ones ?
You bought one 3~5 years ago, and have played enough to know what's a good guitar and a bad one... So what's up ? The sound / the tone has changed ? The guitar has open ? How does this kind of guitar do with time ?
Are we going to see them on gypsyguitars.com in 50 years sold for 20,000 USD ?
