I have been playing my gj 10 for 6 weeks or so. I have had the frets leveled by my local repairman. Big difference. I also strung her up with the argentine strings. There is still some reverb. Not too bad. I will install some leather under the tailpiece soon. The guitar has opened up nicely. Every time I pick it up I am am amazed at the sound and playability. It is a very live sounding box. It plays in tune. Quite nice guitar. I was thinking of upgrading but at the moment I am happy. It plays very easy. They really hit a homerum with this guitar. I have played some other Gitanes but this seems to really fill the bill for me. The neck is thin but it plays so nice. Amazing instrument at this price!
