Giannini Ukuleles

I am considering the purchase of a Giannini baritone ukulele but am not familiar with that company. I have not bee able to find anything about it on the internet but know that it makes or made baritone ukes and was based in Brazil. It also supplied a company called "Emerson" with such instruments for sale in the US.

Re: Giannini Ukuleles

I bought a Giannini Ukulele about 30 years ago and was told at the time they were very hard to find in the states, but you could find them in Puerta Rico. I still have mine and it is in excellent condition! It's beautiful and has a wonderful tone like no other ukulele I've ever heard.

Value

My father which passed left me a Giannini Baritone Ukulele made in Brazil on August 17, 1972 .
Does any one know the value of this?
Thanks

Giannini

Jose Feliciano often used nylon-string guitars by Giannini, if that's any indication of their quality and reputation.

Giannini Baritone Ukelele

I recently came across a Giannini Baritone Ukelele at a yard sale - thought it was interesting and, I would like to find some information about the manufacturer, instrument, whatever may be available. Not much on Internet. Here is what the inside labeling says:

Giannini Baritone Ukelele
Made in Brazil
Tanquillo Giannini S.A.
C.G.C. 61.196.19/0001-76
RUA Carlos Weber 184
Sao Paulo, Brazil

On the top of the guitar is a signature in gold color that says Giannini 1900 . I did find information on the Giannini Company that said it was founded in 1900 (so I assume this is just an indicated of who manufactured the uke).

Not looking to sell but, being the curious individual that I am - I'd like whatever info may be out there. Thank you for your time and consideration to anyone who may have some info.
