Just read this over at Yahoo;
"In a phone call to SAGA today, they said the prototype of a dedicated case for the Sel/Mac guitars has been reviewed and approved and they expect to receive them with in 6-8 weeks.
Secondly I asked about one point on their web site of the description of the Jorgenson DG-300 which states "limited". Their response was that there was a time frame contract with Jorgenson and they will produce as many as they can sell within the limits of the agreement.. That's a little bit better than the Martin Eric Clapton Limited Edition which is now over 7000 units."
It's about time.
One of the reasons that I have not purchased a Gitane is the lack of a dedicated proper case.
I also asked about other models in the works, specifically a 14 fret D.
According to the yawning respondant, "no plans"
But nice to hear there will be a case available in the near future.
left a note over at JJ's message board regarding the "limitedness" of his signature guitar. He usually responds to my puerile questioning.
Thanks so much,

I have no doubt that there are better gypsy instruments out there, but I very much doubt that you'll get one with more bang for the buck. As far as Gitanes go, the 250M is my favorite. I've also played the JJ model, which is very nice, especially if you like a thicker neck. The action on the one I played was very high - not sure how much it could be brought down. I've also played the DG-255, which is nice, but doesn't sound as bright as the DG-250M.
I've been struggling to find a case for my Anastasio recently. It seems all I could find was Jumbo Case. IN some of them my guitar fitted quite well (at least for the body part). But damn those cases are Huge and Heavy.
So I was wondering if there were any news concerning those dedicated Gypsy Guitar Cases ?
I've seen these for the last few months on Ebay but I don't know how good they are :?:
