I am building my first gypsy jazz guitar and wanted to stay true to the original design for the first one. I decided to order the back and sides from Django Guitars because I don’t have the equipment to make the laminations myself. They shipped quickly and were well packed so they arrived undamaged. The rosewood and mahogany laminates are both very straight grained and the color is consistent between all three pieces. The bends for the sides match the Francois Charle plans and fit into my form perfectly. Overall, this is a high-quality product that I would purchase again.
