View Full Version : NUD - Giannini Baritone

WOOT! My wife surprised me this morning for our anniversary with a vintage Giannini baritone, and a new set of Martin M630 strings.

I been playing the heck outta it all day. What an amazing uke. It's heavier than the rest of my ukes, solidly built, and plays like a dream. The linear strings are little odd for me - I play a set of Living Water High D strings on my other baritone.

I contacted Giannini in Brazil to ask if they could tell me when it was built based on the serial #. It was late when I contacted them so no word yet.

If you get a chance - play one. That's all I can say about that.

Congrats! Nice that your wife supports your "habit".

Congrats. A sweet baritone. Happy Anniversary. We'll be married 52 years this November. She bought me a Mele Koa tenor several years back.

Awesome. I have a vintage Giannini baritone from the 70's that I got from Antebellum Instruments / Jake. It's really nice and I really really like it. I have the Martin strings on it and actually quite like them. Jake did such a nice setup with it, that I don't want to mess with it!
