I currently play a cheap Aria Maccaferri copy (retails for around $400 australian).
I am looking to purchase a better guitar in roughly 3 months time. I will have a budget of roughly $2000 australian (i can probably scrounge another hundred or two if necessary). I live in Tasmania, Australia, and thus do not have the opportunity to 'try out' a large range of gypsy guitars (I am playing the john jorgenson, and dorado schmitt gitane models next week, though), however, i do know that i prefer the d-hole's over the ovals.
I am looking for advice on what guitar i should purchase, any replies greatly appreciated.
