    It's interesting...I'm finding that the qualities I admire in a guitar when I'm playing by myself are often less useful when playing in my group. I love a full, rich sounding guitar with bass that you can feel in your chest when you play it. But when I'm playing with my band, it only muddies the waters. I use an electric in my band (a '50's Epiphone Zephyr w/ a P90 near the neck), and it fits into the mix best when I drop most of the bass and crank up the treble and midrange. It carves out my own sonic territory, out of the way of the other guitarist (who uses a Hohner archtop w/ humbuckers) and the bassist.

    I had a feeling you might be playing a Favino-style guitar. I've played the Shelly Park Modele Montmarte, which is similarly sized and it definitely sounded the most rounded and sweet of any gypsy-style instrument I've played. And in a group situation, it cuts through as well as any gypsy guitar. Gotta get me one, when the funds are there!

    Perfect description... no wonder my dreadnaught tugs at my heartstrings so well - it is literally vibrating them!
