Value For Money : Excellent
Saga Gitane DG255, small mouth, Chinese-made a priori
Selmer aesthetic respected violin of quality, well-made floating bridge
Bought new with case 890 euros in a music store in Paris a little more expensive than in VPC (Thomann. ..) but I could try against many of the same model and there were clear differences between them (tone, choice of wood) so be wary ...

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice, thin profile and width at nut comfortable. The action is set correctly (average), the guitar does not frieze.
Mechanical but not very pretty fulfilling their office.
Access to acute and very correct fretting is flawless
It is a pleasure to walk his fingers on it!
Easy guitar to play and light enough

SOUNDS

Well balanced bass and treble, the guitar is powerful and well planned.
As against sound (grain) lacks a bit of personality to a gypsy guitar compared to my Jazz3 Di Mauro (Special chorus). It is essential climbing ropes Argentine style and even that does not quite ... (But it is certainly due to the guitarist!)

OVERALL OPINION

Guitar used regularly for two months.
In fact it is a guitar much more versatile than the aesthetics suggests, you can play the picking for example, it goes very well.
Very good value for money, do not hesitate to try different because the quality is probably not constant
