I don't mean to get into details of bracing etc...
... but in theory... what makes gypsy guitars sound so different?
American-style flat tops like Martins or Gibsons have what I call a very 'clean' sound.
But the sound of a gypsy guitar is somehow "raspy" or sometimes even downright 'snarly'.. so exactly what is that anyway?
Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."
Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."
Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
