Overview

Sure to be popular with any Gypsy Jazz guitar player, the Gitane DG-255 is a faithful recreation of the Selmer-style jazz guitar that replaced the original Maccaferri design of the early 1930s. Easily recognizable in early photos of Django. With its longer scale length, it's a breeze to play and the smaller soundhole gives the guitar its characteristic snap, percussive and focused sound required by aficionados. There is nothing else on the market that even comes close. Let Gitane put the gypsy in your soul.
