Giannini
Mandolins currently built in Brazil. Distributed by Etros Music, LLC in Sunrise, FL. Giannini has been producing instruments since 1900.
In 1890 Tranquillo Giannini left Italy and migrated to San Paulo, Brazil where he began manufacturing guitars. The company eventually became one of the largest manufacturers of guitars in Brazil. They also produced a line of mandolins, craviolas, cavaquinhos, and violas. In the early 1970s, Giannini was distributed in the U.S. by Giannini Guitars at 75 Frost Street, Westbury (New York 11590). If that address seems somewhat familiar, that may be because it was shared by Westbury Guitars, the Merson company, and later Korg USA. Giannini Guitars are still available and distributed by Etros Music, LLC. For more information, visit Giannini's website or contac them directly.
