-This guitar is from Lille. Made in the '60s.
It has 17-frets
Metal-Cordier see the photo
Round-the width approaches a classical guitar.
Trussrod but no-stick hardly changed. (Touch wood)
-Don 't know nothing type of wood, I will not in the name of the different woods used.
-The neck seems a little cheap at first. But I said
the frets are original and have been a butcher.
Still, it easily adapts to the roughness of the sleeve.
-Since this is not a model with cutaway, access to the last fret is obviously in the range of acrobatics.
-The guitar seems very small both in length and width and depth. It is confirmed by its weight ridiculous. I find myself able to play upright as the Gypsy King when I wrists as strong a high E string from the war 14-18.
-In terms of good sound ... what if it is, again, the extraterritorial in all its glory. It explodes the ears. Some would say that the tailpiece is the bridge that are + the sound is so powerful, but I retorted bluntly that I tried gypsy and I had never heard anything like it. The super class. Serious ultra-sound (I understand better the name "Georges Brassens"), the median is like the treble: cast iron pan as one-in-fact-plus-d'chez us: the uber- class.
If accompanied by gypsy style, I could not see what guitar do better: see above.
If we make the solo, it's harder as there is no cutaway. Nevertheless, the sound of the notes one by one worth its weight in gold will slap any type gypsy pot. See above.
If it is to play the French music type sound, it's still very very good.
"I purchased this guitar on ebay in September 2008 for the modest sum of € 295.
Well, of course, there are some small jobs to do but it's still in terms of quality / price ratio, the best deal of my life.
-What I like about this guitar is to see the surprised look of people who hear it for the first time. Eyebrows look like-that-out-of-face. Otherwise, an aesthetic point of view, it has all of the guitar that could go unnoticed if only for a gypsy, she has no mouth but all round oval as pictured.
-If I had to redo this purchase, I would even be ready to pay double without any hesitation. (Sorry for the seller if he reads)
