gitane sound

Post by Hugh »

Does the Gitane really have the sound? I know the Manouche guitars have.
Does anyone know about the hand made guitars for 700quid? they are from Harmsworth and Willis anybody own one? We seriously lack the choice in this country for a wide range of affordable gypsy guitars.Is there a dealer who deals with Dell'Arte? there's one guitar thats 815 quid.

I'll add my 2 p . I have a Gitane John Jorgenson model DG-300 with Argentine 0.10's, played with an AK pick, or Wegen. 3.5 or Wegen 5. It sounds fine to me, and to those who have heard it.
If you've heard Jorgenson in concert, you probably have heard him play one as well.
Having said that, a Toyota is not a Bentley.
