Gitane DG255 Gypsy Jazz Guitar With O-Hole In Natural (GR52067)

Perfect for playing Hot Club de Paris, Parisian Swing, Django Rheinhardt!

GR5267: Gitane DG-255 Oval Hole
Solid spruce top, r/w b&s, oval soundhole, flat c/away, slotted headstock. Made in China


A replica of the oval soundhole Modele Jazz produced by Selmer after Maccaferri's departure.

14 frets to the body with a slotted headstock, easily recognisable in early photos of Django!
With its longer scale length the DG-255 is a breeze to play and the smaller soundhole gives the guitar its characteristic snap, and percussive and focused sound required by afficionados. There is nothing else on the market that even comes close. Let Gitane Put the Gypsy in Your Soul!
