In November 1900, the classical Giannini guitar workshop was established by Italian luthier, Tranquillo Giannini.
His ambition to build acoustic instruments in Brazil led to a long and successful tradition of guitar making still carried on today.
The workshop was an instant success, and by the 1930s the company had to start manufacturing strings in order to keep up with demand and maintain the quality of its guitars.
For some time now, the Giannini brand of classical guitars hasn't been seen in the UK.
With luck, that's about to change, and you should be seeing this reasonably-priced, high-quality range of instruments for sale from this website very soon.
The combination of modern production techniques, traditional skills and Brazilian flair is responsible for the unique range of Giannini instruments available today.

I'm also hoping to announce some interesting alliances with classical and acoustic guitarists as these wonderful instruments are re-introduced in the UK.

Like the unique Brazilian musical influences, the range of Giannini instruments has some surprises. The Brazil series is a range of instruments that gives you a real flavour of Brazil.
The Giannini Craviola guitar (see the illustration above) was created in the 1970s and is available in both steel and nylon string versions and in both 6- and 12-string formats.
If you want to add a unique sound to your repertoire this could be the instrument for you.
A 10-string steel Brazilian Viola and a four-string steel Cavaquinho are integral to Brazilian music, and are proudly made in the traditional way by Giannini craftsmen. Complimentary to the Brazil series are acoustic and acoustic-electric mandolins.
