Gitane DG255 Guitar


There seems to be a glut of Macafferri replica guitars around at the moment and some are better than others. Saga’s ‘Gitane’ series are very much of the “better” grouping, in fact , in my humble opinion – they’re the best! The range includes the original ‘D’ “grand bouche” and the later Selmer “petit bouche” models, plus a faithful copy of the unusual maple neck model and a signature Jorgensen. With select spruce tops set on either rosewood or maple laminate back and sides, with ebony or maple fingerboards and ebony bridge and body binding, these instruments look a million dollars. But the most remarkable thing is, they sound identical to the original, courtesy of the laminate bowed back (as per the original instruments) and the internal strutting.
