Guitar handmade by JL Alves de Puga to Puyoo in France.
My model is a SL 14, SL Selmer (same plane, I think) and 14 to 14 boxes at the junction box inning.
The table is made of spruce, indian rosewood body, the neck is mahogany and the fingerboard is rosewood, the guitar is very light.
The bridge is rosewood, besides this bridge is amazing, I will come back later!
It has in truss rod, mechanical and Grover tailpiece Busato.
The work is very neat violin, the guitar is really pretty.
I put a 8, because there are woods most prestigious recall in passing that it is not the most expensive model, so ....
The handle is very nice, I had some preconceptions about it before, gypsy guitar strings = super high = unplayable = virile and well not handle;
The guitar is well thought out, the angle created by the fold that they "fit" into the ropes course, my action is however not super low, but I never felt tired or had trouble perform a particular song, it's all just a matter of work, of course it must be given time to understand the instrument, kind of guitar has nothing to do with such folk.
The cutaway facilitates access to acute until the 17th freight.
Yet zero breakage, Chevallet, tailpiece, strings even! ....
I play everything with, of course the gypsy, but not that I like to touch everything, standard, gaming fingers, it fits well, or rather we entent well!
The bass is rather precise, mids are very typical and out loud, acute is also an impressive volume, the listener into account that often go elsewhere musician, small mouth delivers a highly directional sound.
Oh yes! this bridge .. it is hollow inside very light, really well cut, I've tried others and nothing to do, it's a good bridge all!
I put a 9 because it lacks that something that offers a massive guitar, it has not, its deep, large volume, but hey it's the same price, and more fragile too ..
Great guitar for a reasonable price guitar luthier, noted that JL Alves de Puga is very friendly.
A very endearing guitar, I kept wanting to play .. especially when the strings are new.

I have a SL14 and I must thank Jean Louis Alves de Puga for the overall quality of the instrument. Well balanced in the registry, it allows the pump and the solo in excellent condition.
Obviously, it is not worth the "big" guitars but Jean-Louis gives us access to good prices for gypsy sounds more reasonable than those charged by the conccurents. Clearly, I recommend this maker. Hello.
The handle is it nice? Access to acute (last string) Is it easy? Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)? Gets it easy to sound good? * ...
Are they suitable for your style of music what are the sounds you prefer, you hate? *
For how long have you been using it? What thing do you like most/least about it? Did you try many other models before getting this one? What is your opinion about the value for the price? Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? * ...
