Makos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It is aptly named!"

Paris Swing CG42
Chinese manufacturing specifications of Dell Arte USA These make beautiful and expensive Selmer-Maccaferri copies. So they know "the music."

- Solid Engelmann Spruce
- Back & Sides Rosewood veneer
- Maple neck / mahogany
- Rosewood
- Bridge rosewood and mustaches
- Cordier nickel plated copper plate with rosewood
- Grover
- Gloss finish

Note the plating head rosewood. properly polished frets. Generally finish beautifully crafted.


The guitar seems to be modeled on the original plans guitars which it is based. The shape of the handle a little square, measurements etc.. The woods are against different. Usually handle maple walnut is here and offers a truss-rod (twenty-first century requires ;-)
Choice of wood species corresponding to the price of the guitar. Engelmann massive table that is the main thing.
Mechanical side, the guitar is not in the tradition with lift covers and galalith buttons. But individual Grover chrome brass gear buttons are visible and effective and elegant.
In terms of its use ... it is made to play jazz manouche ... the swing of Paris! ... but not only.


Power ... this is the word that comes to mind first. Then finesse and clarity. She was born to play jazz but not only. Can quite play fingers a beautiful ballad, sound articulation and rendering is beautiful.
Pumping moderately volume already reached respectable, pressing his game, it plans mightily. Solos pass identical in function of the intensity that is given. Equipped original silver Addario strings, I changed these for the inevitable "Argentina". In both configurations, it sounds!


The choice in this type of guitar is not huge, especially in this price range. Following is guitar luthier ... not the same price, which is normal.
GC42 about this, it is a few hundred euros below the almost identical model from "Gypsy." Not at his level, or finish. Far from it. This Paris-Swing plays in the course of major. Manufactured industrially medium runs well controlled, it offers everything you need where you need it. This is the guitarist will make the difference. In terms of the instrument, it's all good ... I recommend it.
