Richwood RA-70 Gypsy Jazz Style Acoustic


Richwood RA-70 Gypsy Jazz Style Acoustic


The Richwood Hot Club jazz guitar presents an opportunity for Gypsy Jazz aficionados to acquire a ‘Maccaferri’ style instrument at an affordable price.

Made famous by the legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt in his Quintette du Hot Club de France days in the 1930s in Paris, the original model needed to project the guitarist’s lighting fast arpeggios over his four accompanists. The Richwood RM70NT ticks all the boxes to continue the tradition.
