Fast shipping and great service from djangobooks, as always. Bought the guitar on sale, so it got an extra star for value there. Had to sand of a bit on the bridge, to get the action/string distance I wanted. It was very tough to play before i did this.After a quick sanding it is very good. Great sound with lots of bass/low mid. There is a bit of "reverb", or what to call it, stringnoise from behind the bridge or from the tailpiece.

I've purchased the Gitane DG-250M model guitar. The shipping was very prompt and the communication with djangobooks was pleasant and timely. 5* for that. The guitar is of a great quality build and with Bali strings it has a very strong sound, presence, pretty much what I expected. I didn't select the "gypsy set up" or whatever the labor is called to prep the guitar, rather relying on the manufacturer's setup.

Gitane DG-250M

Gitane DG-250M
This is yet another variation of Saga's 200 series guitar. It has the same shallow neck angle and flatter top arch as the others so it is still a relatively dark guitar. The maple back and sides (which look really nice) give it a little more sizzle in the high end. This is my personal favorite of the 200 series Gitanes.

Great value!

Fast shipping and great service from djangobooks, as always. Bought the guitar on sale, so it got an extra star for value there. Had to sand of a bit on the bridge, to get the action/string distance I wanted. It was very tough to play before i did this.After a quick sanding it is very good. Great sound with lots of bass/low mid. There is a bit of "reverb", or what to call it, stringnoise from behind the bridge or from the tailpiece. I read somewhere that this was a common issue with guitars in the lower price range. It was easily fixed by putting a shoestring of leather cross the strings between the bridge and tailpiece. All in all a great guitar. Check out how it sounds here: https://www.facebook.com/manoucheno

great guitar

I've purchased the Gitane DG-250M model guitar. The shipping was very prompt and the communication with djangobooks was pleasant and timely. 5* for that. The guitar is of a great quality build and with Bali strings it has a very strong sound, presence, pretty much what I expected. I didn't select the "gypsy set up" or whatever the labor is called to prep the guitar, rather relying on the manufacturer's setup. Well, this is where I take a star off the product - the manufacturer's setup is much to be desired. As a matter of fact I don't believe there was even a setup to begin with. Out of the box the guitar's strings had no tension and after tightening them up and tuning it had a pretty annoying buzz on the 7th fret on low E and A. After tinkering with it for a little I was able to reduce it, however couldn't eliminate it completely. Then I realized that the guitar wasn't 'aged' in the store, it came straight from the manufacturer so it didn't go through a typical adjustment period for the neck/body to adjust to new strings, etc. After 4 weeks the buzzing is almost gone, seems like it's going in the right direction.
