Giannini Craviola

Posted by Scott on Sat, 01/08/05 - 21:05:16.

I have a mid-1970's 12-string Giannini Craviola (and a Jay Turser which is easy to play, but electronics don't seem too good). Who makes replacement heads for the Giannini? Who makes decent internal mic`s for this sound?

The Craviola is built By Giannini of Brazil, the older ones use a Brazilian Rosewood back & side and a laminated top. Giannini is once again as of 2002 building the Craviola-contact any Giannini Dealer and they can get the tuners. The Turser is a low end guitar-The problem very likely lies with an uneven Bridge saddle bottom or saddle slot (especially if the sound is uneven). To upgrade the transducer would be more than the Guitar is worth: But a Fishman ribbon transducer, properly installed, would greatly improve the tone.
