As the newest addition to the Gliga range, released in Australia in late 2016, the Saint Romani represents outstanding value for a European-made instrument. Using the same body made from the same solid tone woods as found in the Gliga III, the Saint Romani has a hard wearing nitro varnish which is then cut back to a pleasing satin finish making it ideal for the student level which tends to be subjected to more punishment.
Genuine ebony is used for both the pegs and fingerboard (as opposed to stained hardwood often found in student instruments) along with high quality maple for the bridge from the famous French Company AUBERT.
The case is stylish, lightweight and comes with backpack straps making the Saint Romani outfit ideal for correct posture with young students who are already often weighed down with heavy bags.
