For Sale: Vintage Tranquillo Giannini model 901 classical acoustic guitar serial number 5139. Made in Brazil 7/68.

Plays perfectly, very sweet tone, can use new strings. Neck appears straight and action is low. Appears all original with no repairs or replacement, there is crazing to the finish and a small ding near the side binding, otherwise nice shape with very little wear. No cracks, good neck joint, good original tuners.

I believe the top is solid spruce and the fretboard and bridge are Brazilian rosewood. Looks like these were imported by Unicord (Univox) in the 1960's to the USA and the Model 901 was one step down from their flagship model T-4.

From the web:

Giannini guitars were (and are) made by the Tranquilo Giannini S.A. factory, Carlos Weber 124, Sao Paolo, Brazil. They are generally known for being well-made instruments featuring very fancy Brazilian hardwood veneers, as well as for the strange-shaped asymmetrical CraViola models. Probably the most famous, indeed, perhaps only famous, endorser of Giannini guitars was José Feliciano. No reference materials were available on the early Giannini guitars. A catalog from 1971 is available, with a snapshot of the line that probably goes back at least a decade, and certainly forward.
