I have an old archtop Gugino.A beautiful instrument with curly maple back and sides. I can't find much info about the maker, other than he apprenticed under D'Angelico and was responsible for some innovations in neck design. The guitar is around 70 years old and in excellent condition. Does anyone have any knowledge of this maker or the value of his instruments? Thanks

Re: Gugino guitar

My name is frank Gugino,it was my grandfather that made these guitars.Lately,there have been some interest in Gugino guitars.I have three examples of what he made,a guitar,a mendola,and a violin.I sent some info on "Carmelo Gugino" the maker to a Scott Froelich in Buffalo and to another gentleman I believe in the Chicago area. I will tell you what I know if you write me.

regards Frank a. Gugino Sr.

Gugino Superba Guitar

Mr. Gugino,

I have a Gugino Superba Guitar that belonged to the grandfather of my Mother-in-Law. It has the mother of pearl inlay and is in very good condition. Two pieces of inlays have fallen off on the neck, but other than that the guitar looks great. Do you know how much this instrument would be worth?

Thank you,

Kristen Crino
