Gypsy Jazz Guitars

Want a new Gypsy Guitar that sounds great, easy to play and at a reasonable price?


That’s what I was looking for! And my search led me to master luthier Edward Polak who was infected by my enthusiasm, set to work researching and experimenting and has succeeded in constructing guitars that even exceed my requirements.

After more than 15 years working with Polak guitar, I can highly recommend Yaakov Hoter’s Gypsy Jazz Guitar Model – this guitar is just what you need to really shine when you play – and you can afford it too!

Yaakov Hoter

Django Reinhardt’s music ignited my guitar passion at age 13. My journey spans Blues, Rock, Pop, Arabic Oud, Jazz, and Gypsy Jazz. Throughout it all, one thing has remained crystal clear to me – music is a universal language, free from the constraints of style or genre.
I’ve collaborated with renowned musicians like Bireli Lagrene and Martin Taylor, gracing international festivals. My academic journey includes a music college degree and a Music Academy bachelor’s. I document my musical journey at gypsyandjazz.com, helping thousands of players around the globe play the way they love and love the way they play.
