I have a Giannini GS570, serial 1622 that I bought from a friend who had bought it at a garage sale. When I got the guitar it was in bad shape...the finish is damaged...lots of cracks and the bridge was cracked and about to split but I loved the sound and feel, so I bought it and took it to a repair shop. It is now my favorite guitar...stays in tune, sounds amazing, is impervious to weather changes. Every person that plays this guitar falls in love with it. The bizarre thing is that no one can tell me what it's worth...I have asked several guitar shop owners and I've scoured the internet. I hope you find out how much yours is worth so I'll have an idea about mine.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I own a 1976 12 string Giannini Cravoila. Same unusual
shape-great for sittng down while playing. From what I've read,
the Craviola is a nylon-string. Anyone have info on that?
My guitar has standard steel tuners, but I'm tempted to try
nylons on the first three strings. Just had the neck and bridge
glued-some cracking, but now plays ok, although some bridge buzz
due to lowered action, I suppose.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

: What do you know about the history of this guitar

I know that Brazillian classical guitars are noted for their unusual sound. I don't know if any of you remember the famous guitar duo from Brazil who toured the world as "Indios Trabajaras" They gave Chet Atkns one of their guitars. Their guitars had a beautifull singing treble, and although they dressed as Brazillian indians, they were both well trained guitarists.

I don't know if this has anything to do with Giannini, but I just bought Giannini a classical by mail. The pictures show a ordinary looking classical guitar with odd looking wood for the top. The rosette is really good looking in a tastefull Spanish style. The inside says 1900. As soon as I get my hands on it I will update this. Meanwhile, like the rest of you, I would like to find out more concerning this mysterius instrument. Hope I didn't bore everyone. Ray Provence

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I too have one of these guitars nd they are a bit of a mystery. I bought mine about 23 years ago in Auckland and it has a beautiful tone. Built of split rosewood it is certainly the work of a craftsman.

If anyone has a clue what they are worth please let me know.

Gianini Craviola AWN6 Classical Serial # 11/310

I purchased this guitar new about 1974 in Atlanta from a guitar store on Peachtree St. near buckhead.
It is in MINT condition and I am looking to sell it now.
Does anyone know what it might be worth?
Thanks.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I have a strange looking guitar of this name. It is very old with a serial number of 000007. The model

is AWKS6

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

: My parents gave me a Giannini guitar, Model # 4, Serial # 3930, in the 60's (date in guitar is 4/65). Sticker inside indicates it was made in Brazil. The sound hole is beautifully inlaid with mother of pearl. The front is a light-colored wood. The back is a dark-colored wood with a split back design. It's really a lovely old guitar with a mellow sound. I'd like to purchase another if the company is still in business. Any leads on finding another one?

Giannini Vintage Guitar

Have you been able to get a valuation of your instrument? Recently, I was gifted a Giannini guitar made in September 1965 that sounds very similar to yours in that it has mother-of-pearl inlay around the sound hole. It is also a No. 4 model, about which I have been able to find nothing on the Internet.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

: What do you know about the history of this guitar

I was given a guitar by my step father. Don't know anything about it. I want to get it re-strung for my son, but would like to know what its worth. the label reads:
Giannini
serie Estudo
tranquillo giannini s.a. ind.de cordas.....
made in brazil
on the arm there is the Giannini signature with 1900
can anybody help?

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I don`t know much about the history of Giannini guitars,but I own an AWN 85 made in Brazil in 09/73 By Giannini. If you have any information. on this guiar I would like to know more about it. It seems to drip tone and plays smooth as melted butter: Ive had it for a few years now and for me the honeymoon has never ended

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I actually have the exact same guitar only with a different number inside. Mine just reads AWNE 31. To me it sounds nice but I don't know. Is it a very nice guitar or is it just (as "estudo" suggests) a beginner model?

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

: : What do you know about the history of this guitar
I have a Giannini Guitar from early 1950. It looks like a ukulele it has 4 strings. Excelent shape. Can you tell me what it is worth. History ?

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I have one also it has a number "1 AWNE 19" The "19" is the number of frets...AWNE is the model .... and the "1" I haven't a clue. Everyone likes the sound of the instrument...you have a very nice guitar...

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I have the same model number and was wonering about it's value? It was given to me by someone who didn't have any idea of where it came from. It is a lovely looking piece.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

Hi, the translation for the label inside your guitar is
Giannini - Student series
Tranquillo Giannini Inc. Strings industry
made in brazil
The guitar you describes, with the signature and 1900, is a recent one, medium-priced student guitar, with less than 10 years old. 1900 was when Giannini started in business, and that is a comemorative issue.

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

I have my Dad's Giannini guitar, he bought it in Brazil in 1963 - inside, on the lable, it reads pretty much the same as the other person's guitar, but it also has "No. 1008".

He was offered $300 for it in the early 1970's.

How much are they worth now, and what more can be told about their history? I need to know some more info so I can insure it. Thanks!

Re: Tranquillo Giannini Craviola SA 12-string Guitar

In the early 1970's I purchased a Tranquillo Craviola Giannini SA Brazillian 12 String Guitar, Model #812, Serial Number 10/068. I am assuming it must have been built sometime in the 1960's. . . Perhaps 1968. Other information on this guitar's inside label reads:
Carlos Weber 184, Made in Brazil and SAD Paulo, 10 S.P. Brazil C.G.C. (MF) 61,196.119/001, U.S. Distributor: Merson Musical Products, Westbury, New York. This guitar is in mint condition and plays very well.
Can anyone give me some background information on this particular guitar such as:
1. Current value
2. Any collectors information

Thanks . . . Faith

Hello there. I cant help you on your question but Id like to post a question myself. I am also curious about the worth of a guitar I have when it was first made. Of course its nothing the same as it was. I found this trashed guitar in a attic of an old garage. No strings, top pulled away from the sides, UGLY color (I later discovered it was repainted) not worth much more than hanging on a wall. Being a guitarist and seeing the wear patterns deep in the fret board, (not to mention worn to wood where its rests on your leg) I had an idea of the style of music played on it. This poor little guitar had a past life of volumes! I took compassion on it and fixed it up just to be playable. Something I could take camping and not worry about getting scratched. It sounds so good I recently stripped it and found what I think is a Imbuia wood top and brazilian rosewood sides and bottom. Its Model No. 2 and Serial No. 10453 and has a date below that (which I assume to be Manufacture date) is 9/65. Incedentaly, I was born 6/65 so this has further indeared it to me. If anyone has any input to enlighten me I would be forever gratefull. Thanks, your fellow musician, Greg.

I have, and love, a Giannini AWN 86, 1978 made in Brazil. I always thought it was probably not a valuable guitar but I wonder because it plays wonderfully. It appears to be Brazillian rosewood sides and back with a spruce top. Does anyone know the value of this guitar?

I also am trying to help a friend with the value of her Father's Giannini 1900 Made in Brazil, series MPB CGC-MF 61.196.119/001-76. This is all the info she gave me. He is now deceased and She needs a value to put it up for sale. Thanks, ButchBoswell@COmcast.net.

Re: (1978) Giannini Classical Guitar

Hi It has been a wile since this post. I have a Giannini gs240 It was bought for me in 1969 new. It was my first guitar and I still play it to day. Made of mahogany with a spruce top and rose wood fret board it still sounds as good to day as it did way back when my mother bought it. It has aged well. as for the worth I know my mother paid $110.00 with the case. as for what it would be worth to day i have no idea. I know I would never sell mine, it means too much to me first guitar and all roots. I have had many offers, but this one will be passed down.

Re: (1978) Giannini Classical Guitar

I am looking at buying a Giannini Guitar it says Tranquillo and it is natural wood that is greenish red. I am wondering if 165.00 is a good price for this 1967 guitar. It also looks like the bridge has been repaired. Other than that I dont know because this would be the only guitar I have ever purchased. It has the original pieces of paper on the inside that say Laolga414, S. Paulo Brazil
Model no. 4 Serial no. 33269 then 6/ 67

Thanks for any help!

Re: Giannini Classical Guitar

: What do you know about the history of this guitar

I also own a '74 Giannini that I purchased from a little music shop in Pennsylvania. I've seen lots of imitations, but very few of the real thing. It's has a tear-drop with a single cut-away design. I don't know if there are any other designs available. The wood is beautiful - light front with dark sides and dark mirror image back wood split in the middle. I tried to look up any information in the encyclopedias we have in our computer system, but nothing available. I'm in the process of seeking info on the internet. If I find anything I will update this.

Abandoned for junk in the attic of an old garage) To my suprise it has what I believe to be a Imbuia wood top and Brazilian Rosewood side and back. Its like a new guitar now, and a favorite of my collection. Dont know much on backgroung though. Let me know if you learn anything about our guitars. Play on, brother! Greg

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

: I'm looking myself. I have a Giannini model #2, serial 18676 dated 12/65. Mine has no marks on the back, yet front edges have wood change of red, and brown variatons.

I have a Giannini Guitar which I bought used. It is six string and has a beautiful mellow tone.

Does anyone have any info on this guitar? The Model AWN 50 and the Serial 3/218.

Any info deeply appreciated. K. Abbott

Giannini GN50 Serial#J1069

I would like to know what year this guitar was made, and find out some info on it's value ,etc. I have seen giannini's home page, but can't find any info on this model. I recently purchased it, and gave it to my daughter. I have seen two on Ebay that sold for $60, and$90, but I saw someone in Maryland, or somewhere, wanting $5,500. Is that crazy, or is that legitimate? Sure would like to know.

Giannini GN-50

I believe production of the GN-50 started in 1965. Initially, the exact production date was typed manually on the label that was glued inside the guitar. Apart from that, the design of the label changed a few times during the period the GN-50 was manufactured. You can see some different labels at http://www.guitar-museum.com/model.php?ID=5247.
If the label inside your guitar mentions the address 184 Rua Carlos Weber, Sao Paulo, it means that it was made in or after 1970. In that year, Giannini moved its production facilities to that address (http://www.giannini.com.br/eng1/timeline.asp).
I own several Giannini guitars (and a lot of other guitars as well), but the GN-50 is by far my favorite guitar. It is quite small but still has plenty of volume, and the sound ... well, it sings! and it plays incredibly well. My GN-50 was made on 19 Oct 1971, according to the label. I paid 75 euros for it, but I wouldn't sell it for ten times that amount, no way! It is just an amazing guitar.

Giannini GN50 good for 8 yr old taking guitar lessons?

I have a Giannini GN 50 built 8/1970 , Serial 5473. It is in near perfect condition. It is a small guitar, possible 3/4 size? Would this instrument be good for an 8 yr old who wants to take guitar lessons?

Giannini Classical Guitar

I recently purchased a Giannini Classical guitar for pleasure. It is model no. 522 serial no. 17285 produced in 12/1965 in Brazil. It is in very good condition. It has a beautiful sound. Could someone please let me know more about this guitar? I want to also know approximately how much it's worth. I'm hoping I didn't pay too much. Thank you to anyone who could help me

Giannini guitars

Giannini guitars are still substantially under valued. I am referring to vintage from '60's , 70's and some of the new high-end classical guitars. The woods used are typically good tonal woods, and the construction is solid. I have several of them, and in my estimation, these guitars will triple in value in the next few years. Good tonal woods are becoming increasingly more difficult to find and purchase. Supply of wood is low, restricted, and politically a problem. I think a guitar such as the classical GN 50 is worth between $180--$350, and the GN 60 between $300--$600 ('60' and '70's vintage). These are far better than any cheaply made new inexpensive guitar that is made of "nato" wood (something somewhat better than ply wood), or some other tone-deaf wood. A musical instrument needs to sound good, otherwise it becomes something like another useless gadget. Go for it!
