Anybody remeber them? I think they were made in Brazil. The acoustics and classicals that I saw were easliy on a par with the Yammy's and Taks of that era, 20 - 25 years ago. They played well, sounded great, and were very well priced. If I found one in good shape today, particularly in a 12 string, I'd be very tempted.

I think a friend of mine had one 25 some odd years ago. It was a classical with a cutaway and I remember being impressed with it at the time.

I had a Giannini classical in 1975. Nice guitar, sorry I let it go.

There were some that were decent and some that were really made with sub-standard materials. They all seemed to sound good though. Visit my website to see what I did to repair an 8 year old Craviola that looked like Willie Nelson's Martin... See before and after at http://www.rockbeachguitars.com .
