Gypsy jazz guitar player Django Reinhardt will forever be connected with the Selmer/Maccaferri guitars manufactured in the 1930′s and 40′s in France. There are many handmade replicas of these wonderful flattop guitars, but very few affordable alternatives available to musicians pursuing the Gypsy Jazz idiom. The new Gitane D-500 definitely fills this void!

The new Gitane D-500 replicates the earlier 12 fret ‘grande bouche’ version designed by Mario Maccaferri and features a solid spruce top, laminate rosewood back and sides (like the originals), 25 1/4″ scale length, 1 7/8″ wide nut, 20 frets with 24 fret treble extension, slotted peghead, moveable compensated bridge and gloss finish.
