To make it short:
I just got a Saga Cigano GJ-10 from this site (shipped to Argentina). I compared it back to back with the Gitane models and to my ears (been playing guitar for more than 20 years now) the Cigano is far better (and cheaper).
Great, GREAT entry level- intermediate guitar.
Good construction (even if it is a no-frills model), sound and playability.
Get this one without hesitation if you're on the market for a first gypsy axe. (This one is actually my second).
