I have a Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin archtop (with P-90). I have been interested for a while now in learning to play some rudimentary Gypsy Jazz. I don't foresee a guitar purchase in my near future so I will be using what I have.
I have heard that archtops can be good for this and you don't HAVE to a maccaferri-style guitar. Would this be correct?
Also, could I buy, say, some D'Addario Gypsy Jazz strings to put on my Godin? I assume it would be fine but I'd like to be sure before I bother.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
