2019 APC JMD Luthier Manouche Gypsy Jazz – £799
NEW ARRIVAL The Gypsy jazz style guitar, first made famous by Django Reinhardt, has always been in demand from a small but devoted music scene. More recently these guitars have gained popularity, and because of this, there are quite a few makers building these beautiful looking guitars. This fine example is made by Portuguese company APC, and is from the top of their range Luthier series. Made from all solid woods it features a Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides, a Mahogany neck and Ebony fingerboard. It also has the very distinctive D shape sound hole, rather than the small oval found on most guitars of this type, which allows greater volume. The guitar has a satin finish which lets the body resonate more, adding to the dynamic feel of the instrument. It’s in excellent condition and comes in it’s original hard case.
