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?

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.

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.

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.
