This guitar is one of those hidden gems nobody wants to admit is worth wild. It is a gypsy jazz guitar, so pretty much every guitar player will avoid it because they either know nothing about it or assume it will be junk like the other cheap Django guitars. Well, I've owned all the cheaper models, the Arias, the Stagg, the other no name brands...the Cigano smashes them. This guitar is not junk, it is an exceptionally well made acoustic guitar, right now you can get it for around $330 new if you search for it online. The GJ10 has a superior neck to $1000+ taylor guitars you can see at guitar center, guitars like the 114ce which are one of the best cutaway guitars you can get. This cigano not only feels better, but actually sounds better. This is going to be hard for anyone to believe, a $400 guitar besting an expensive TAYLOR? No way! Well, it does in its own way, while the taylors are more clear sounding, they simply do not project like the cigano does. Pick them up side by side and see which one feels better, the cigano wins hands down for me. The taylors feel like plastic and are not made for lead soloing, their finish mades it feel plastic like and super slick and smooth, this is not a good thing for me. I prefer the natural wood grain feel to the Cigano. In terms of pure quality, the body on the Taylor 114ce is better, but the neck is not as easy to play on as the GJ10. The cigano simply feels better in every way and it sounds better for lead soloing. Ibanez made the AE series that is also nice for Django style, look them up if you prefer to avoid the gypsy jazz guitar look. the ibanez AE cutaways go for under $300 used and are comparable, amazing neck and body on them, also a gem guitar and can be a valid substitute for django music and lead soloing with the right strings.Read more ›

By David Bieling on February 20, 2015
It has the sound it is supposed to but these need a bigger soundhole to sound a lot better. The finish was rough in the cutaway and the tailpiece had some discolored spots. I lowered the top 3 strings by taking wood off the top of the bridge.

I used a drum sander attachment ($8 Harbor Freight)
for a drill to remove 3 of the 6 rings around the sound hole. This has livened up the tone considerably, especially down at the bass area. The sound hole is definitely too small. Have all sanding going downward to avoid lifting the finish. Do the last ring by hand
rounding the edge there.

This is great sounding guitar. Plays well as a gypsy jazz guitar, and works well with other music styles too. For gypsy jazz, I find myself tuning down to D, in order to achieve the string bends of gypsy jazz. This is not a problem as far as the guitar's ability to stay in tune goes. I tune up easily to standard tuning, and surprisingly, the guitar stays in tune. My only issue with this guitar is when I recieved it, part of the moustache bridge had fallen off. I glued it back with some wood glue, and it has been okay ever since.

This has to be one of Saga's biggest pieces of junk they make. Not to mention grossly misrepresented on the types of wood. Rosewood my ... The only description to compare this guitar to a Martin or Taylor is the word "junk". Actually "Junk with a capital J" If you want to learn Gypsy Jazz just go buy any off shore guitar in this price range and at least you may have a playable instrument. The only thing this has going for it is it has the look. I have had three Saga guitars. From this to $700 price range. Disappointing all of them to say the least.
