Re: giannini guitars

i own a giannini acoustic model #2/a serial #594 dated 2/69 is this worth any thing ? it sounds good

Re: giannini guitars

: I tend to disagree with some comments here about VINTAGE Gianninni's not being worth much. This is not true, especially if you have a old one that's absoulutely superior in sound to alot thats out there. Keep in mind the older Giannini's were made by master hands. I agree that not all of them deliver but there are exceptional instruments out there. The older models buy the way WERE NOT LAMINATE, they are solid. John.

:what do you know about a giannini model GN65? THX

You sound like you might know a little bit more about this guitar than I've been able to find out so far. If this is true, I would love some help. Thanks

Re: giannini guitars

I have a Giannini nylon string with an unusual body style.
I traded for in it Lubbock, Texas about 35 years ago. It sounds better all the time. The body is extra nice rose wood

plywood top Giannini

I have a Giannini that is a great sounding guitar with great action but it has a plywood top. Only identification is the date inside, 16 Jan. 1974. Were plywood tops common? Seems strange since the sides and back are booke matched Rosewood.

Looking for a hard shell case.

Giannini Guitar

My cousin gave me this guitar about 11yrs. ago,I just recently took it out of its case, I put new strings on it.It is a mid body nylon string guitar.I would like to know how much it is worth, I cant find any serial number on it but at the end of the guitar on the neck it reads Giannini in cursive and right below that it has 1900 on it and their is a sticker inside the body that says Giannini, the sticker is maroon with gold lettering.I beleive that his father gave him the guitar but other than that I dont know were it came from or purchased.But if any body has any info. on how old it is or how much its worth I would appreciate any kind of input on the Giannini Guitar, Thank you.

I have come across a 1960 giannini guitar mo. no. 901 srl.30698
I was planning on restoring it. anyhow, I heard they were not worth much exept or a few exeptions. would anyone know if this particular model is?

Re: giannini

I have a Giannini from 11/1968 Model 900 serial #11351 and it's only flaw is that the varnish has become crackled (not flaking off though) from years of storage (since 70's). If you learn of anything, let me know as well :)

Re: giannini

I just found a 1965 model 900 stuck in a corner of my moms living room. Forgot I left it there 30 years ago. It, too, ha crached front finish. I don't believe it has much value but I have a friend who sells Collectible guitars all over the world coming to look at it this weekend(04/11112-13-03). I'll post a followup.

Giannini

I have a Giannini 12 string model AWKS12 made in 1977. Does anyone know anything about this guitar? Is it a good brand?

Re: Giannini

Hello
I don't know much about it, but I also have an AWKS12 from 1977, it's no8.
It'a brazilian guitar called "graviola" which means it's a cross-over instrument. Grave=harpsichord, viola=guitar (I think). As you know, it has a very nice tender sound.

Re: GIANNINI GUITAR

My grandpa gave me a nice Giannini and it plays nice but I do not know to much about these guitars. I was wondering if it should just be like a practice guitar that i can through around and not worry about or if it is worth a good some. It is in good condition and it looks like it is just a full body 6 string acoustic. Does anyone have a clue of it's value? Email if you do. thanx

Re: GIANNINI GUITAR

Elvis Presley thought enough about the Giannini Guitars that he owned several of them manufactured between about 1968 and 1971, model 900. Go to the Elvis official web site for pictures of his guitars including the Giannini. These were in his party room and were used when friends came over to jam with. One was used in his movies in Hawaii.

Re: GIANNINI GUITAR

: I have owned two Giannini guitars. Not the best make for longevity, but a fantastic sound! They are now being built again by another luthier. Go to MusiclandCentral.com. I am looking forward to my new Giannini!

hello danny manani

i dont no if you remember me but im kool

Re: GIANNINI GUITAR

they are manufactured in brazil.
generally they are not worth much, even vintage. they were low end guitars and you can usually find them in guitar stares for $150. however, there are some that are very valueable, but these exeptions are rare. for every 5 guitars produced by giannini, about one would have quility sound. Also, the wood it is made out of is quality and the sound of a guitar improves with age, so if it sounds good (deep bassy sound with distinguishable treble highs) you should hold on to it. the best advice I can give is to take it somewhere that does appraisals.

peace,love,dope
