Hey! I'm a bit new to Gypsy Jazz and all of the gypsy guitars that I've played were Oval holes. I am now ready to buy my own gypsy guitar, but I cannot decide between Gitane DG-350 John Jorgenson Model (Oval Hole) or DG-350 Jan Akkerman Model (D-Hole). An inexperienced friend told me that D-holes are used as rhythm guitars, as I also have seen (mostly on youtube), though Angelo Debarre often plays a D-hole when playing lead. I think that D-hole guitars are much cooler looking
, but my concern is that they (while playing lead guitar) don't cut through the sound of 3 backing guitars playing rhythm manouche?
So I would appreciate som thoughts, advices and suggestions on this matter.
