Is that a gypsy guitar, a gypsy jazz guitar, a manouche guitar, a Selmer replica guitar, a Selmer/Maccaferri based guitar, a Django style guitar or just a guitar?

My God! they're all in the bathtub together, taking turns to drop the soap. :shock:

It's not poofy for men to express admiration for one another; in fact, Cabo, it's a very beautiful thing. It's only when we start touching each other's bottoms it gets all poofy.

You appear to have a peculiar fixation with bath-related sexual encounters. Is there something you need to get off your (hirsute) chest?

Thanks. The guitar is a 14 fret maple oval hole made by Godefroy Maruejouls - the same guy that made Stu's guitar. The man is seriously talented. I'm not one of those people who changes guitar every six months, but when I played this one I just had to have it!

Nice playing, and a splendid guitar. So much for maple guitars being too harsh - fabulous tone. Where does the maker work?
British?

Thanks. Yes the guitar is not harsh at all! Godefroy is a Frenchman living in London. Here is his website:

Yes Godfroy is just about the best maker of these guitars in the UK in my opinion.But in the end its the player not the guitar as i'm sure teddy would agree:-)
