Saga Gitane D-500 gipsy guitar

This Gitane made me smile every time I played it. It had an incredible volume and nice gipsy tone when played with a heavy pick. It was my first gipsy guitar This Saga is the best value for money for a gipsy-jazz starter (see reviews). I bought this one in december 2006 second-hand from TFOA after a tip from Cok van Vuuren. I sold it in 2015 as my Eimers Antique had replaced it.
