I was the lucky winner of this guitar at the 2013 Djangofest NW raffle right before I went onstage to perform with Fapy Lafertin and John Jorgenson. Unbelievable experience I’ll never forget! Of all the gypsy guitars I own I like the sound of this one the best. It’s super loud, cuts through in jams, the chords sound super crispy and lead lines full of tone. Olli told me he likes this guitar better than his own personal model. AJL did a great job of treating the top to give it a vintage look but didn’t overdo it like some luthiers do. One of the best gypsy guitars money can buy…
