I just came across this guitar, and I must say it is excellent, quality, sound, playability wise. It compares and even exceeds guitars I have that cost more than twice as much (we all know how prices can be with these manouche guitars)
If I knew this guitar was this good I could of saved a couple of Gs on higher models..
I highly recommend the Gitane DG-250M
Absolutely correct! I bought it used from Guitar Center, and luckily the chain had the 250 available at the same time, and I was able to snag that. Actually came with a fantastic case and was cheaper than the 250M. I'm saving for an Altamira right now
I have read your review, and I'm still confident that Michael will provide a good guitar and if something is not right, will make it so.
That being said, I've played shoddy Gibson's, Fender's, and even a couple of dud Eastman's, but I wouldn't say that any of those brands aren't good.
This was exactly my situation. First gypsy guitar and it was suitable till I realized it was ringy and I needed a better instrument to get the ring out. I sold mine and do not miss it, but as a starter it is a good choice.
