|For the Gypsy in your soul! Faithful copies of Selmer and Macaferri Jazz Guitars|
These beautiful guitars pay homage to the Selmer and Maccaferri guitars of the early 20th century. They are all solid wood, are a joy to play, and look and sound like the real thing, right down to the excellent reproduction of the original tailpiece.
The amazing Gitane models caused a big stir in the music press:
- Guitar Buyer: "Gold Stars: Great Sound, Great playability, Superb Value for Money. Black Marks: At this price, none"
- John Jorgenson (who plays Django Reinhardt in the movies!): The one thing that has been missing has been a high quality gypsy jazz guitar at an affordable price - until now....The D250M is just an all-around great guitar, not even considering the price.
- Guitar Player (USA): These Gitanes provide affordable, toneful passports to the world of Gypsy jazz guitar.
- "Satisfying recreation of a 1932 big mouth Selmer Maccaferri. Huge warm sound and excellent playability" - DG500 reviewed in Guitar Player Magazine.
