    What were the problems you experienced with the UK Manouche guitars?

    Thanks for all the advice! I got creative. I put some coins under the bridge to higher it (I saw that on Jimmy Rosenberg's guitar once), and cheap though it may sound (it cost me 10 cents, and if I don't like it I can get them back, lol), it makes a great difference! :D The guitar feels a lot more powerful now. It's drier and I'm amazed this sound was in the guitar. I'm still a little unhappy with the neck and the other stuff, but this definetly has me picking this guitar up a lot more again. :D

    You can also try using picks to shim it.

    In that set up video for Gypsy guitars they recommend making bridge shims from self-adhesive pickguard material like this stuff from Stew Mac: http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Pickguards/Pickguard_materials/Acoustic_Pickguard_Blanks.html

    There's a clip from the DVD on the tube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIbRMk8LA6k

    Glad you got it sorted, Simon, I'm having fun with my Cigano.

    A friend of mine here in Philadelphia has a Mateos that I absolutely love, and I think he got it for about $1200 US. He said Mateos was willing to negotiate.

    Hi Michael,

    I assume you're talking about my Mateos, and just to set the record straight, I paid a fair bit more than $1200, and I bought it USED -- not from Geronimo but from Jeff Radaich, who plays rhythm in Gonzalo's band, and has his own band, the Long Beach Caravan Trio. In fact he played my guitar on a lot of cuts from their CD.

    Best wishes,

    John

    the ciganos are really great man, i think you need to get your guitar properly setup...

    Get it fixed by a pro, play it for afew more years and when you 've saved up enough money get yourself your dream guitar...

    btw i tried the latcho drom guitars that michael H talked about, last year at djangofest, it definitely is a great guitar!
