Geronimo Mateos "Audrey" Gypsy Jazz Guitar 2017 Model

Geronimo Mateos has long been one of the leading Selmer Maccaferri style luthiers in Spain. Based in Madrid, his guitars are played worldwide by such notably luminaries as Angelo Debarre, Tchavolo Schmitt, and Gonzalo Bergara. Angelo Debarre played a Mateos guitar on the CDs "Come Into My Swing," "Entre Amis," and "Memoires," (Tchavolo Schmitt plays one as well on "Memoires") and Gonzalo Bergara played a Mateos built guitar on the CD Porteña Soledad.

The Audrey model is a Selmer copy so it has all the specs you'd expect of a classic Gypsy guitar. The comfortable 15 3/4" body is constructed from an attractive piece of ovangkol and the 670mm scale walnut neck features a modern, ergonomic profile. The top is cedar which has been tastefully tinted to give the guitar the look of a finely aged instrument.

As you'd expect of a cedar top guitar, this instrument has the refinement of tone and prodigious volume that one would normally only find in a well seasoned vintage instrument. It's quick, snappy attack makes even the most subtle phrases easily heard. Tonally, it is open and complex with a wonderful high end sparkle. No doubt, this wonderful creation has that elusive ""Wow!" factor we all seek in a guitar.

A European handmade instrument of this quality is rarely found for less than £4000 making this instrument an exceptional value. If you're looking for great Gypsy tone for less, this is it!
