Gitane DG-270 Modele Andy MacKenzie
This is a very rare maple model Gitane of which only a handful were ever made! This model features numerous improvements suggested by the illustrious Welsh jazz guitarist Andy MacKenzie. Upgrades include gorgeous birdseye maple back and sides and an increased neck angle which improves projection and allows for the use of a Stimer soundhole pickup.

Unlike some of the prototypes, this guitar does not have Andy MacKenzie's name on the headstock. Also, this version has an attractive mapeloid tailpiece insert.

This model sounds wonderful and is arguably the best model Gitane ever produced. This is the last one available as these were produced as part of a small, limited run of high quality prototypes. Don't hesitate as once this beautiful example is sold, we'll never have these again.

Reviews and Ratings


DjangoBooks/Gitane DG-270

Pros: Great communication, Fast Shipping

Cons: None

Michael from, provides Top Level customer service. I had wanted a Gitane with Maple back/sides, but Mahogany or Walnut neck. The only thing that came close was the DG-250M. Unfortunately the 250M had a Small Maple neck, which cuts through, but lacked Depth. I had singed up for the newsletter, and was surprised to learn through the newsletter, that not only had Gitane made a limited run Maple/Walnut guitar, but DB had 2 for sale. Although rare, Django Books did not price gouge, and the price was on par with other 200 series Gitanes. The Guitar sounds and plays great, and It arrived from California to New York in 3 days, via USPS. I see many sites touting Altamira and Dell’Arte Asian guitars, so I was VERY happy that Michael did not try to steer me towards these guitars. I’m sure they are fine, but I’m very happy with Gitane.
