GIANNINI GUITARS KICKS OFF RETURN TO US MARKET

GIANNINI GUITARS KICKS OFF RETURN TO US MARKET

João Bosco and Gonzalo Rubalcaba turned in a historical, stellar performance at the TAM Theater in Miami on June 29th, entertaining the sold out event with their unique combination of the best of Brazilian and Cuban music. The show started with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, renowned Cuban pianist and multi Grammy winner, playing several solo pieces. João Bosco then entertained the audience with numerous solos, before being joined by the remainder of his quartet. For the final hour plus of the event, Rubalcaba and João Bosco’s quartet turned the evening into a crowd pleasing Brazilian/Cuban jazz fest with impressive individual performances.

Bosco, who endorses Brazil’s Giannini guitars and strings, has become known worldwide as one of the most inspiring and original Brazilian artists. A virtuoso guitarist and outstanding composer, he has worked with most of Brazil’s top musicians as well as several international stars including Herbie Hancock, Lee Ritenour, John Patitucci, and Michael Brecker. João Bosco’s quartet initiated the tour in Miami, which also includes shows in San Francisco, the Montreal Jazz Festival, and a European tour culminating with the Montreux Jazz Festival.

The Miami concert marked the return of Giannini Guitars to the US market after nearly a decade-long absence. At the end of the event, João Bosco presented a lucky attendee and die heart fan with an autographed Giannini Classical Guitar. ETROS Music will begin distributing Giannini Guitars in the US in July. Giannini Guitars are “Crafted with a Brazilian Soul” and the line includes a wide variety of acoustic and acoustic electric models, from student guitars to all solid handcrafted instruments, including the unique Craviola® widely popular in the ’70’s & 80’s. For more information on Giannini Guitars, contact ETROS Music at (954) 746-2777 or info@etrosmusic.com.

Bought a Marshall

Marshall JMP50 and cabinet off some old dude for 300 bucks Canadian. Its from 1978 but the guy said he stopped playing about 15 years ago and its pretty much been just sittin there. Its in pretty much mint condition, he bought it new he said, used to be in some kinda country band. anyway, not a lot of featured but i dont really care, for that price...it'll get me by.

Re: Bought a Marshall

Great amp, not the best choice, but very good amp.
well done, the only problem you may have is with the output valves, bu they are not too expensive to replace.

Vantage for sale

I have a Vantage 718DT-1 serial #106486 for sale. I got it in '91, I'm the only owner it's ever know. This guitar has been modified to have tone control on the bridge pickups, which are Humbuckers that can be switched on and off. The other two pickups are single coil. Still the original flawless paint job which is colored black with a bronze design on it. Any specs anyone can tell me about would also be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Vantage for sale

IM interested, send me soem pictures with the price, korvetluvr@yahoo.com , thanks, trevor

Question about Pick up Covers

I have a Epiphone SG an i want to replace the pickups with some EMGs..my question is..can i put the pick up coverers on over the EMGs? and will it make a difference in sound? because i notice alot of guitarists keep the EMG pickups uncovered...but i think it'll take away from the look of the SG.

and also, what about Seymour Duncans...can you cover those without altering the sound?

Re: Question about Pick up Covers

if you take a standard gibson humbucking pickup like a 490r (SG standard pickup) and take the covers off it makes no difference to the sound, some people say it does, i cant hear a difference, dont know about the EMG's are they active?? maybe that makes a difference, whats wrong with the SG pickups? that guitar is one of the best rocking guitars of all time.
Lee

Re: Question about Pick up Covers

Never took the covers off any of my EMG's but i took them off of my buddies explorer because he wanted to "fool" people into thinking it was stock and it took away from the sound a bit because it didnt cover as big a range as it was made too, in the end he lost a little top and and got rattly clean end.

jap fender p-bass

hi all - i'm in posession of a japanese fender p-bass. it's black with a black scratch plate. the only identifying mark is a serial number on the headstock (1008153). the neck plate just says fender. i cannot find any reference to this on any site. the only thing that comes close is guitar.about.com which suggests this could be a PB62-70US model. does this mean it's a re-issue? please help me, i love this guitar and desperately need to get it insured as i'm gigging loads at the moment and don't want to be able to replace it with something similar if (hope this never happens) i loose it...

cheers

Good Metal Amp

I need an amp that will give me a nice smooth distortion for the new (not NU!) metal band i am in which i play rhythm in, any recommendations

Re: Good Metal Amp

Well metal players usually choose one of 4 amps, The mesa boogie triple rectifier with solo head, or the double rectifier with solo head, or the marshal MF350 or marshal's 2203X, i dont have enough money for any of those but id personally go for the mesa triple rectifier but thats because im a metallica fan, thanks much, Trevor

: I need an amp that will give me a nice smooth distortion for the new (not NU!) metal band i am in which i play rhythm in, any recommendations

Re: Good Metal Amp

dont listen to that metallica fan fool a head an cab are v.expensive.
buy a line6 spider amp(or the line 6 spider amp mark 2 is out now) these are modelling amps which give you a range or tone, the distortion on the spider amp(insane) is 2nd to none the amp will cost round £200(50w) - £299(100w) these our the prices for the mark1 not mark 2. if you already have an amp buy a boss metal zone pedal.
hope this helps

Höfner jazzguitar 3/4

Help! Help! I need some information.
I inherited an obviously old small (3/4?) thin acoustic blond Höfner jazzguitar with F-keyholes. On the back of the headstock I can make out 'oU 863'. 14 frets till the cutaway body, no dots on the frets but white plastic(?) stripes. double ones on the 3d, 5th and 7th fret, after that single stripes on the 9th, 12th and 15th. Arched back. Höfner (with Umlaut)is written on the vertical wooden shield on the headstock and on the see-through plastic(?) guard. F-holes and front and bick with white binding. No truss rod. Simple, trapeziumformed tailpiece. No visible signs that there ever was a pickup installed.
On the headstock is the name of a Dutch musicshop, that closed its doors over 20 years ago. Shopkeeper dead.
Does this ring a bell?!?!?! Please help me identify this charming isntrument!

Looking For Long Lost Friend

I am trying to find a guitar player that I knew several years ago. His name is Tom Mince. He is probably about 30 now, and lived in Missouri the last time I saw him. His mothers name is Jeanie and I was her roommate for a while. He and I were very close freinds, but lost touch after I moved out of state. I miss him terribly. If you are him, or know him, please send a response to deidrekay72@msn.com

Tanglewood Europa - origins please

Just bought a s/h Tanglewood Europa, and its FANTASTIC.Easy action, great sound, second to none build quality. But don't know anything about it. Solid electric, maple neck, clear glaze burnt wood finish, gold everything, no scratch plate. 2 humbuckers (tunable pots) and single centre p/u. I'd like to know a bit of history, like when were these made, what did they retail for, what market was it aimed at. Great for metal no doubt but sound's so sweet it outperforms my Strat on Shadows stuff. Anyone help please.

any info?

Hi, did you ever get any info on the tanglewood? It was my first electric, bought it back around 96/97. I have a white one. Still going. I contacted tanglewood but they had nothing on it.
