An eccentric's guitar

If you can afford a further £100 to have the action made comfortable by a top-class luthier then this is a very good guitar indeed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer seems to think that ' gypsy ' means plectrum thrash and ships it with a muscle-testing 3.5mm at the 12th fret bass E. Consequently it's a bad guitar out of the box- and a box is what it comes in.
There is no truss rod- which leaves but two means of setting it up properly; lowering the twin saddles and fitting bridge beads to maintain a decent break-angle
. However, once that is accomplished you've got yourself one hell of a nice eccentric guitar.
It's extremely light, which is very pleasant, and the woods are quite exciting , particularly if you're used to the solid spruce/rosewood formula. If you can find the right tension strings for it- and the ones it comes with are pretty close- the guitar has sweet spots all over the fretboard. I used Augustine Regal Blue hard tension as a matter of record but I'll probably try some extra high tension next . Of course, that may cause an increase in the - unadjustable- neck relief so it's a matter of trial-and-error for different players.
The machines look a tad dull but they have replaceable bone buttons and good ratio. The intonation is excellent, if not perfect, but that's an arbitrary judgment.
For the money, and the good quality, this guitar should have come with a fitted Gitane case but mine cost an extra 80-odd quid. So guitar, case and essential luthier attention round out at just under a grand. Is it worth it ? Yes, just. My DG-560 is a keeper.
The neck is cypress, incidentally, not mahogany. The Thomann description is inaccurate but I knew that before I bought it. Cypress makes for a beautiful and lightweight neck and this one is oddly square-ish yet comfortable. That- along with the really interesting sonic characteristics - adds to my practice time and that's what everybody wants from a good guitar.
