Price : US $175.00
This auction is for a beautiful Giannini Craviola 12 string acoustic electric guitar. Im the original owner; it was purchased in 2004. It is fine playing condition, the action is low and very comfortable for a 12 string. The guitar has a pre-ban ivory saddle, solid Bolivian rosewood sides, red cedar neck, and pao ferro fretboard. Its set up for light gauge strings. This was a touring guitar of mine, and received a fair amount of use for the last 3 years, as one of my favorites. The frets are in excellent shape. B-band electronics installed. Come with gig bag.
There is moderate wear on the body...several dings on the wooden binding, and a few on the sides. None of these are major. The top and back are in very good shape. There is a small hole on the bottom from a second pickup system that was previously installed. It doesnt impact the sound of structural integrity of the guitar. I think the guitar is stunning visually.
However, the buyer should know that the guitar was dropped at one point on stage, resulting in the dredded headstock snap. The headstock only split about half way from the neck. It was repaired in a shop while is was the on the road, the tech believed that glue alone would not stablise the repair because of the added string tension of the 12 strings. So there are 3 small sunken wood screws supporting the glue. The headstock is 0 stable, the guitar plays and stays in tune perfectly. I have tried to show the damage/repair. Of course the guitar must be sold as is.
Ill answer any additional questions...the buyer will pay actual shipping charges...I will use a mail pack store I have an account with...it will be profe
