Augustino Augie F-22

Hello,

I recently saw an excellent condition Augustino Augie F-22.

It is similar to an Ovation style guitar with a plastic (assuming)
Rounded back.

I cannot find any information on this model. Any idea
of its value?

Thanks!

F22

Likely price is about 300 or so, Ovation round back, I think it is a mesh of some sort with a resin applied.

Good luck, let me know how the tone is.

LoPrinzi model designations?

Could anyone definitively comment on what the difference between LoPrinzi L,A, and V models is? Is it a chonological difference, or actually a physical or dimensional one?
Thanks for any help!
Ben

Differences

There are old models dimensions charts on the Facebook Augustino LoPrinzi Guitars and Ukulele page. Imaged by members. Fro both the L, V, and A models.

Roughly:

I forgot to mention that there is also a chronological difference in labeled guitars.

A LoPrinzi first '73 - '75-ish?

LoPrinzi '75 - '80-ish?

Augustino '75-ish? - 2000's

I think the L models were first, then maybe the VR and VM shortly after?

All A models were under the Augustino label, best I know.

Depth of body changes a bit on model to model

Sizes V: lower bout 14 1/2"

L: 15 - 15 3/4"

A: slightly larger than the L models and shoulders squared a bit more.

Model differences

LoPrinzi labeled
A LoPrinzi labeled
are L and V models

A models are Augustino labeled guitars.

L and V models have different body sizes, rounded shoulders of upper bout

A models are slightly larger than L models, more squared shouldered than the A LoPrinzi and LoPrinzi models.

Augustino AR-38 Low 200's number. Augie Signed.

I have had this one since 2004. Was in excellent condition when i got it and have put some really nice touches to it. Looking to see if there is serious interest for this classic.

Augustino AR

I have a lovely Augustino LoPrinzi AR-38 Dreadnaught #0075 Made in Rosemont, NJ signed “Augie”

It's a fine hand made instrument comparable I'm told to a Martin dreadnaught with herringbone top trim, Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony bridge, mahogany neck, with a signed label, that I bought in Philadelphia back in 1975. It play's great and frets are hardly worn.

What's it worth "out there" if I let her go?

AR-38

I'm curious to know if your AR-38 is still available. Also, where are you located? I might be interested in looking at it.

Loprinzi at-38

Hey I see your interested in the ar-38 I have one with the series number 0992 in very good condition.Might be interested in selling.In the Philadelphia area Thank you Vito

Ar15-12w Loprenzi 12 string guitar

I am interested in finding out about a Loprinzi 12 string guitar that belonged to my deceased husband. It is signed by a T Loprinzi. Numbers inside are AR 15-12w. I am thinking about selling it but dont know anything about it. Thank you in advance.

AR 15-12w

Usually the AR designation, would be one signed by Augie. You sure it reads AR 15 and not LR 15? Value would be around $1000 approx most likely. Year built would be sometime after 1976 or so. Is there a # stamped on the inside into the neck block? If it is signed T LoPrinzi what if any label / logo is on the headstock.

Acoustic Guitar by Augustino Loprinzi AR-38-12 Serial #0534

I have a Acoustic Guitar by Augustino Loprinzi AR-38-12 Serial # 0534. Does anyone know what year this guitar would be? Is this Guitar a classic guitar or a elite series. Trying to find out what year it is. Thank You! I am selling one of these guitars and think I may have some information wrong. Including the price. Anything would help. I emailed Donna Loprinzi and hope she responds as well.

AR38-12 year built

I would think the guitar was built in 1978, first year in Clearwater, FL.

I purchased mine for $850 and it is in very good condition. Bought from original owner.

LoPrizi Guitar

I am a volunteer at an animal rescue in AZ. We had a Loprizi 12 string acoustic guitar donated to our rescue. We would like to know what we have and if it has value. I can send pictures if given an e-mail. Can you help us?

12 string

Please send me a few pictures of your guitar and a picture of the label. I have one that is a 12 string as well. I may be able to tell you the value.

Donated guitar

my email is johndwapa@gmail.com

Happy to help with some detail. Feel free to contact me.

Donated 12 string

Can you give more detail on the donated guitar. What does the label say? Where built. Any # stamped on the inside into the neck block. Approx value would be $500 - $1500 depending on condition, model, year built.

Hope this helps a little.

Your LoPrinzi, H.C.H.S., the first shop

Hi Bob, I remember you from H.C.H.S. I was Class of 67. Mark Levine, whose parents apparently owned the building the shop was in, took me to see the shop. I finally bought my first Augustino 9 years ago and it is a steel string CM-36. I really love it. Now I am beginning classical guitar lessons and would like to find one of Augie's to play. Is yours a classical? Let me know what you have been up to all these years, and also tell me about the guitar, whether it is classical or not. All the best, Joy

If you are selling a LoPrinzi or Augustino

I more than likely will have an interest in making an offer. I am still collecting them and playing them. If in need of repair, I have a great luthier in my area for bringing them back to life.
Especially interested in the early ones from Cane Farm days. Just drop me an email and I will respond.

Thanks

LoPrinzi 6 steel string acoustic

I have a LoPrinzi (I believe it is an LM or LR 6). I am the original owner and purchased it new in 1975. Birdseye maple body and mahogany neck. Good shape. A very unique sound, not too bright or dark, but rich in tone. I recorded with it in Nashville and other places and rarely play it since I toured in the early eighties. Original hard case. If you are interested, I can send photos or other detail. I plan on listing at Elderly Music in Northern Indiana or Gruen in Nashville. I never use this instrument and it is among many that I am tired of moving around the country when I only perform with my favorite 5 or 6 these days.

Your Lo Prinzi guitar

If you can contact me via email or phone, we can talk about the LM from '75. My phone is listed below in this email list as well.

Thanks
John

LoPrinzi LR15

Bought my LR15 in 1975 from Dean Markley, in Santa Clara, CA. It's an "augie", has his logo and signature on the label.
Also bought a Guild F-412.
I've played them both a ton, since then.
The LoPrinzi is maybe the most balanced sounding guitar I've ever played. All the way up the neck. Pitch is right on the money.
It has a nice deep bass, rich mids, and absolutely crystal clean highs.
You guys who have one of these, know what I mean.
Fortunately, I guess, I've never had a problem with the neck.
I recently put a set of Power Pins on it and it is amazing. Bumped up the volume without any distortion or loss of tone quality.
I've also got an '85 D-28 Martin and the LoPrinzi is every bit its equal.
Guy who does my guitar work met Donna at the last show and had to tell her how nice my LR15 is. several of my musician buddies who've played mine have picked up their own.

I am still seeking A LoPrinzi guitars

If you have one you are thinking of selling, please drop me an email. or call 415-286-1318
