I NEVER buy instruments online... but, here in the middle of the Pacific there is no one who deals in the Gypsy type instruments. A friend recommended Michael's company and after a couple of emails and a phone calls, I took the leap. The guitar showed up and I haven't put in down in the two weeks I've had it. The set-up by Josh, the resident tech, is highly recommended. It looks like a pretty tricky set-up for the uninitiated tech. Thanks and Aloha to Mr. Horowitz and company.

I love this guitar! I ordered it with the gypsy set-up and higher quality bridge. It feels excellent and has a nice sound. I am getting a slight buzz up in the higher registers and have had to shim the bridge up a little bit (could be climate?). It seems to be built very well and looks beautiful! The case is great as well... I'm a sucker for green fur lining. Totally worth the money. I highly recommend the bridge swap that Djangobooks offers.

Gitane DG-340 Modele Stephane Wrembel Model

Gitane DG-340 Modele Stephane Wrembel Model
The DG-340 was designed in collaboration with the NY based French Gypsy jazz virtuoso Stephane Wrembel. It is one of Saga's most modern feeling and playing Selmer copies. It tends to have less volume than the DG-300 and is a little more archtop like in tone. Great guitar if you'd like to play in the ever more popular Gypsy/Bop style favored by the new crop of young French virtuosos. The austere, Benedetto style look is also very refreshing.
