Not sure if it’s laminate or solid mahogany. No separation of neck from body. Serial number 05382. Purchased from Dan’s guitars in Honolulu. Had better sound than Kamaka baritone much higher priced. More projection for sure.

Gotohs installed by Kilin Reece, well known musician and Luthier on Oahu

How did it get to Hawaii? My guess is that there are many Brazilian s and Portuguese on the island. Eddy Suzuki told me that he sold Mel Torme a baritone when he was here on the island. Eddy was a famous songwriter and music store owner, not to mention a character.

Thanks, Kimosabe. I took my Giannini and Favilla over my Martin. The upgraded tuners are a real plus sounds like it's been setup also. This won't last long.

Sold to a lucky man in Washington.

Thanks for the interest. Dirk of Southcoast Strings, R.I.P., once referred to Gianninis as the holy grail of ukes. I miss Dirk.
