Better than the Gitane for less money

Comments about Paris Swing Model 39 Gypsy Jazz Acoustic Guitar:

A question often heard on Gypsy Guitar forums and gear sites is whether to purchase the Gitane DG-250 or the Paris Swing Model 39. I briefly owned the Gitane and the Paris Swing at the same time and compared the two guitars.

My assessment is that the Paris Swing has better tone, a better feel, and a better build. The Gitane I had was a used instrument and in the beginning had more volume than the PS but over time as the Paris opened up it had equaled the volume of the Gitane with the added benefit of having much richer tone.

The wider and thicker neck of the Swing make playing Django chords easier. In addition, the fast ratio of the Grover tuners make string changes a breeze. Plus the slotted head stock is in keeping with the Selmer tradition and makes string changes easier. The tailpiece is a DR Nickel Plated, which would be an $79 upgrade to the Gitane.

The only problem I have with this guitar is that I can't put it down. I just keep playing it. Been playing guitar over 40 years and this is one of the most pleasurable instruments I have ever owned.

I just put a set of Saverez Argentine's on it and the sound is full and rich. Previously I played a set of Martin Silk & Steel which sounded great. I tried D'Addario Gypsy Jazz Strings (the shipping strings) and have a new set I plan to try when the Saverez strings wear out. I believe it will sound good with any Silk & Steel strings. It seems to sound best with an 11 or 12 on first and 15 on second.

I highly recommend this guitar.

    Comments about Paris Swing Model 39 Gypsy Jazz Acoustic Guitar:

    This isn't my first Selmer Maccaferri model guitar. I play in the gypsy jazz style and have been practicing on it everyday since I got it. I notice compared to my more expensive Altamira from DjangoBooks, it really holds its own. It has good volume and the tone is sharp and biting for lead lines. It sounds good for rhythm too. I like the way the neck plays better than the Altamira. I find it more spacious for lead stuff but somehow easier when fretting harder chords.

    It came playing nice out of the box, the action may be a little low for the traditional gypsy jazzer, but I like it lower and it's perfect. The volume distribution between all the strings is very even. I highly recommend this guitar, I wish I could buy another to bring to teaching and have as a backup. It is definitely great for practice, jamming an absolutely gig worthy. Playing finger style such as Bossa Nova stuff sounds great too.
