Good for the Money but watch for the high action

For the money this guitar is well put together, the frets are finished well with no rough edges and the binding to both the neck and the body are very tidy. However on arrival one of the decorative end pieces on the bridge had dropped off. Nothing that a bid of wood glue couldn't fix and din't spoil the overall satisfaction with the build. If the piece had been missing from the box this would of course been a different story. The tail piece is a nice addition and adds to the overall look and style.

Again for the money the sound is in the right ball park with the right gypsy style twang and crispness. If you wanting to dabble in the gypsy jazz style but don't want to commit to a large outlay this is a good starting place. Bear in mind that the guitar has a scale length (nearly 680mm) which takes you into baritone scale length, however this is not a bad thing and all part of the overall sound. You may just need to be aware of the different feel.

Now here's the but, the action is set very high for a modern production guitar, having played the guitar for nearly 50 years (I started very young...honest) it reminds me of the cheap copies that were almost unplayable. This guitar is no where need that bad but it may come as a bit of a shock if you're use to a reasonably low action. I've played classical guitar for quite a while so it's not too bad but I'm still contemplating having some work done on the bridge to lower the action. This will add an expense to the overall cost so well worth thinking about. I have given 3 stars overall as this aspect detracts from the guitars 'student status'

Although this guitar is one of the most affordable ones in the gypsy jazz category, it plays just like any guitar in the more expensive price range. Gypsy guitars need to have a certain sound to them, and the Cigano GJ-15 captures it very well.

The only thing I don't like about this guitar is the action, which seems to get significantly higher near the body. Also the first thing I would replace on the guitar would be the tuners, which have a rather cheap feel to them. That being said, they work just fine and keep the guitar in tune. Otherwise I can't really complain about anything. Cigano calls it a student guitar, which I think is because of the more modest matt finish (compared to the pricey Gitanes, which all have a glossy finish).

Overall a perfect guitar for players starting their journey in this exciting style of music.

I recieved this guitar with 9-10 and 11 fret problems on 1-st string E, no sound, sound's skratched, the same. Fretboard not completely straight. I understand that this problem exists naturally in guitar world, but if quality of SAGA production can not rich normal level to sell copies of Alessandro Maccaferri just stop it, shame on you. 460 EUR not the top of the prices for those guitars ofcourse, it's not even any normal level, under bottom, but I was expected more positive result. Now I must search for the guitar master to calculate if it possible to normaly reapir it. I am very disappointed.
