The 1968 Selmer catalog listed seven Brazilian-made Giannini classical and fingerstyle acoustic guitars, from the very fine model 535 (illustrated), to the entry-level model 6.
A new high standard is brought to classical and fingerstyle guitars by the latest range from Tranquillo Giannini, makers of supreme quality guitars since 1900.
Designed and built by master craftsman, each model in the range is extremely sensitive and capable of fine degrees of tonal shading.
The wonderful resonant tone and great carrying power comes from the use of selected lightweight woods and a slightly arched back. These two features minimise sound absorption and ensure forward projection of the sound. The superb overall finish includes finely-carved neck and smooth rosewood fingerboard.
