Description Technical Specs
 
Sure to be popular with any Gypsy Jazz guitar player. The gitane DG-255 is a faithful recreation of the Selmer-style jazz guitar that replaced the original Maccaferri design of the early 1930's. Easy recognizable in early photos of Django! With it's longer scale length is a breeze to play and the smaller soundhole gives the guitar it's characteristic snap, percussive and focused sound required by afficionados. There is nothing else on the market that even comes close. Let Gitane Put the Gypsy in Your Soul!

5 of 5 Decently done at a bargin price December 24, 2008
Reviewer: Michael  from Virginia, USA  
This guitar is almost flawless and gig ready out of the case, and more amazing, in tune. I read a lot of reviews on the net and experienced none of the complaints about the tuners, the tailpiece or the strings. Remember this is a factory built guitar, not handmade. The tuners are OK, the tailpiece is solid and the strings on it will last as long as any others before they need to be changed. It is incredibly LOUD and plays like it has a custom neck at about $100 less than anyone else.
