Hello! I am going to buy Selmer-Maccaferri style guitar. At the moment I have 3 options:
Gitane DG-250
Paris Swing GG-39
Cigano GJ-10
My favorite here is Paris Swing GG-39. Does anyone here have an experience with selmer style guitars? I am looking forward for an advice smile.gif
Also, what can you say about instrumentalley.com?

Due to finances (300$ for shipping is way too much) I switched to Cigano. Does any one know any good European online stores, where I could buy it? The cheapest shipping I found is 170$ on ebay and I'm kinda too greedy to pay a half of the guitar price for shipping biggrin.gif

Do you have an guitar store that you can travel to that sells these type of Gypsy guitars? It would be good to be able to at least test it out first. It would be a shame to have to pay so much for shipping, but I understand these things can't always be avoided. dry.gif

Thanks Ben. Shipping there costs 25 euro only smile.gif But the guitar is more expensive, so I suppose the best option is still to buy the guitar on ebay.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any store or atleast a used guitar to try this guitar.. But I've read some reviews and watched videos, so I'm pretty sure about this one.

As I've read about dell arte gypsy guitars, the old ones are really great but the new ones are far from it.. So I'm kinda afraid to order it without trying it first, but thanks smile.gif
