Giannini, AWN-50 Classical Guitar, Serial #1/747, Made in Brasil

This guitar was a gift given to me in the Spring of 1973. I've been the only owner of this guitar and it was my first guitar. It's a small guitar with a fairly decent sound. Trying to find the approximate value of this guitar. I've seen other Giannini Guitars on Ebay, but not this particular one.

Any help provided would be most appreciated!

Thanks!

My guitar

I am also wondering about the value of a Giannini, serie Estudo Model AWNE 21 in mint condition. I don't think it was EVER played -- and it has a case too. I believe it was made in 1976, but I could be wrong.

hello. i have a giannini

hello. i have a giannini guitar. model 6/A serial 6390 . date: 5/69 does anyone know something about it?

Searching for info on my Giannine guitar.

I purchased this guitar in 1970. Any info,value etc. would be very helpful.

Thanks

Bill

Giannini model GN120

I have one also. Bought in 1969 model GN120 sn 327. I gave $60 for it at that time. It has lasted through children and grandchildren so far. It still sound and plays wonderful. I don't know what its worth but it been the only guitar I have kept for that long of period of time.

Giannini Classical Nylon String, 1968?

Hello everyone,
I am trying to find some information regarding a guitar that belonged to first my mother's mother, then my mother, and myself for over ten years now. I learned to play classical style on this instrument, but it is in need of some love. It is a Giannini Classical Guitar, made in Brazil and dated 12/68. The sticker says: "Giannini Guitars / Tranquillo Giannini s.a. / Brazil 12/68 / Model 2/a / Serial #11775. It is 3/4 size. Does anyone have any interesting or clarifying information on this model? Online info is scarce, and being 44 years old and not the most valuable chunk of lumber in all creation, interest is hard to come by at the usual sources.
All my best,
Moriah

Re: Giannini Guitar

:I just came across a Giannini guitar in pretty good condition. Everyone who sees it says to keep it. Does anyone have any input? Model number 518 serial number 11/67.

giannini model 518

I have the same one numbered 2/66 We are not sure if it is number 2 of 66 made or made in February 1966. If yours is also the same model with 11/67 I'm leaning more toward that being the month and year. Did you learn anything else about yours? Ours has an absolutely beautiful sound.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I have a Giannini AWBN5, ser # 8/73. I purchased it in 1973 for $140, (which I think was a good amount of money for a guitar at that time). I am trying to find out what it is worth now. Does anybody know? Is anyone interested in buying it? I just don't play it anymore. It is a 6-string classical, in beautiful shape, with good sound.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I spotted a guitar sitting on the Curb, to go out with the trash, when I went out for my morning paper. I woke up fast after looking in the hole and noticed Made in Brazil. Ive been in the import/export biz for years and know the Brazilian woods are protected by treaty so they can only be found in older, vintage instruments such as the Giannini. I took in the guitar which needed a good cleaning, new tuning machines and strings. Mine is a 901A Serial No 1158 from 2/69. The original tuning machines appear to be on a silver chassis with Mother of Pearl knobs. Anyone else notice that?
Ive been playing for many years so this find becomes part of my colletion

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar 1972 AWN 20

I also dusted off my Giannini 1972 AWN20 10 yrs ago & can't find a better sounding acoustic in any store today. It is a little gem with excellent touch which I would never part with. Try putting on some Martin Marquis (light gauge) & it rings forever, great tone.

What is it worth?

I had just purchased an Giannini AWN 20 at the local antique shop for $10.00. Mod is AWN 20 and the ser is 07 1974. Was wondering if it worth anything? It is an electric. Thanks for your time.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

: What do you know about the history of this guitar

I have a Giannini Classical Guitar that was given to me as a birthday present for my 19th birthday (I am now 54). It's an acoustic/classic and I have carried it everywhere with me all over the world. It has a beuriful sound. Itwas made in Brazil, Model #6, Serial #19818 and was made 01/66. It states Tranqillo Giannini s.a.

I am a self taught guitar player and only play by ear and have loved this instrument. As I have developed an early movement disorder (very early MS) I am unable to play it and would like to know if it is worth anything to help me pay some of my medical bills. It is a beautiful guitar and I hate to part with it, but sometimes we have to do what we have to do.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Most sincerely,
Linda Thompson

I think the Model GN80's were made in the 70's and I think their price at that time was around $109.00. I just saw one in a Bloomington Pawn Shop for $119.00. It was in pretty good shape with just a little checking and a few minor scratches.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I have a model AWN70 serial # 08-1974 in excellent condition. My wife purchased it for me in 1974 and I never played it. Just the other day my daughter showed interest and in having it strung and tuned, the owner of the store was very impressed with it being a Giannini. The numbers he threw around as to the price of a Giannini makes me want to know what value this guitar really has. My daughter will respect and care for it, but she is on 15 years old, and being 15 she is going to handle it as a 15 year old would.

Sorry for the long story, but if anyone help me understand the value of the guitar it would be appreciated greatly.

: What do you know about the history of this guitar

I have an AWS 740 model Giannini guitar which I bought 26 years ago when I was 15. I have only ever seen one other Giannini guitar in a guitar shop since. Does anyone have any ideas of what its value might be (its in 'new' condition)? Or similarly, any information at all on this guitar. Many thanks

Re: Giannini ACOUSTIC Guitar

: : What do you know about the history of this guitar

I have one that is 35 years old and is a 12 string. I too am trying to find out the value of it, and also what type of woods were used, along with any other info i can get. I have contacted the Giannini company via their web site. Hopefully i will get something back from them.
