Fans of Gypsy-Jazz guitar as well as guitar aficionados of every stripe will applaud Saga’s re-introduction of the classic Selmer-Maccaferri style jazz guitar – the revolutionary and market leading Gitane D-500! All measurements and characteristic features of this guitar were faithfully recreated to make this the highest quality and affordable guitar of this kind on the market today!
The Gitane D500 represents the first great Gypsy Jazz guitar designed in 1930 and refined by Gitane for even greater playability and tone. Its large D-shape soundhole and classical guitar appointments set the style for all similar guitars to follow and its characteristic tone became the standard for all Gypsy Jazz music.
Authentic Gypsy Jazz shape and dimensions with 12th fret neck joint. Solid Sitka spruce top with traditional large D-shaped soundhole creates a warm and ambient Gypsy Jazz sound. Santos rosewood back and sides guarantee deep bass and strong cutting power. Low profile mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard provides fast, easy action. Traditional brass tailpiece and ebony compensated mustache bridge, perfect for the Django Reinhardt enthusiast.
