That appears to be a very well made instrument. Gypsy guitars are a real niche in the US so I want to stay with something that has the classic Selmer style and construction in case I ever want to resell.
I'm interested in Django Selmer style guitar, the one with the smaller sound hole. I want to avoid the cheaper Asian imports but am interested in options around $1500-$3000. Used is probably preferred. ANyone have any suggestions for brands or sources?
You never really know what you might see that "strikes your fancy". Keeping an open mind is a good way to go. Otherwise you can become fixated on finding a certain item and disappointed if you don't locate it. Better to enjoy yourself and pick something that makes a connection.
I find the collection of scarves to be very good in Italy, certainly more interesting or expressive than most US retailers. I find that to be an enjoyable memento.
I also seem to find unique cuff links.
