Product# 580376

A unique student model gypsy jazz guitar with a D-hole and a short scale for easy playability.

From the complicated playing techniques, to the limited availability of truly affordable instruments necessary to capture that proper Gypsy tone, the obstacles to learning how to play Gypsy Jazz music can easily discourage the seasoned guitarist, let alone a beginner. To make it even easier, Saga Musical Instruments and Gitane guitars introduce the GJ-15 Cigano Student Gypsy Jazz guitar. Its short-scale, D-hole design gives it that characteristic deep bass response and incredible volume making it the perfect rhythm guitar. Value, tone, playability and workmanship will meet or exceed any players expectations.

  • Beautiful Asian rosewood back and sides
  • Short scale, D-hole design with traditional soundhole rosette
  • Nato neck with rosewood fingerboard
  • Deep horizontal cutaway

  • Mahogany peghead overlay with Cigano logo
  • Ebony mustache bridge with movable center
  • Traditional brass tailpiece with plastic insert

Comments about Gitane Cigano Series GJ-15 Gypsy Jazz Guitar:

i've bought 5 of these, 4 for gifts. pound for pound this guitar can't be beat.
gifted one to a serious professional musician friend who had a few mid to high range GJ guitars, and this one, right out of the box, became his go-to-guitar for GJ.
it's also easy to play, easy on the hands and fingers. i think that's because of low string tension and "soft" strings.

Cigano GJ-15 Guitar


from Virginia

Comments about Gitane Cigano Series GJ-15 Gypsy Jazz Guitar:

Superb value
I was very pleasantly surprised at the build quality and tone of this guitar, as a cheap instrument. Extremely light weight, lots of sustain and a real sweet tone, somewhere between a classical and an archtop--plenty loud. Very decent satin finish, not too heavy. The guitar was very playable, plays in tune up the neck. Could maybe use a little buffing of the fret ends, but I expected worse, given the low price-- was definitely very playable right out of the box, with a new set of strings (the strings that came with the guitar seem to be appropriate strings for this type of guitar however; I mention this because the Saga Gitane guitars years ago used to come with the wrong type of string). I'm very happy with this purchase.

good for the $


from Vanciuver

Comments about Gitane Cigano Series GJ-15 Gypsy Jazz Guitar:

I'd give it a 6 outta 10
I knew what I was getting when I ordered this: a cheaply made gypsy guitar. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it - had a big, loud, style appropriate sound. Plays pretty good, it's in tune.If you're lloking to dable in this style, it's a good place to start. It was recommended to me by a young guy at Djangofest NW. As he said, "you won't die with this guitar".
It took a while to get it as it was back ordered.
