I already owned this model myself and continue to use it when playing outdoor gigs or to practice on when travelling. It's a great instrument to get started on (or to continue on of course). It cuts enough to handle lead work, and is loud enough to handle rhythm work. This second instrument ordered was for a student, and I recommend this particular instrument to all of my new gypsy-jazzers. The short scale makes it easy on little hands or newer players (or very easy on those used to playing ...

Saga did a nice job of creating the warm, balanced sound that the original 12 fret Selmer Maccafferis have. You'd be hard pressed to find a professional who would use this guitar for lead as the 12 fret neck limits high fret access and the shorter scale doesn't produce the biting lead lines that the longer scale guitars have. However, the warmth and balance of this model make it an excellent Gypsy jazz rhythm guitar and it can even be used in other styles like rock and folk.

Gitane D-500

Pros: Quality and price

I already owned this model myself and continue to use it when playing outdoor gigs or to practice on when travelling. It's a great instrument to get started on (or to continue on of course). It cuts enough to handle lead work, and is loud enough to handle rhythm work. This second instrument ordered was for a student, and I recommend this particular instrument to all of my new gypsy-jazzers. The short scale makes it easy on little hands or newer players (or very easy on those used to playing already!) and the price is very reasonable considering the long-life, versatility, and playability of this particular model. Can't compare to a hand-made model at all, but that's apples and oranges if you ask me...
