I play straight ahead and have been studying gj for a year or so now. A more daunting task than I anticipated. Never the less my respect/afficion for the music has increased exponentially since I attended Django in June '08. The virtuosity and humility of Adrien, Robin etc... was quite amazing.
My current axe is a Cordoba D-5. It's been a nightmare. Mostly because no one in Columbia, SC knows the style or how to set a gj guitar up. It's fine for a student axe but I'd like to get something a little nicer yet still affordable and I know it will be dressed and set-up immaculately if ordered from Michael. I've researched the Gitane DG-255 and Dell'Arte Pigalle models. My budget is $2000. Any input would greatly appreciated.
