The Craviola is back! Giannini starded to produce a reissue of the Craviola this season. It is a solid body mahogany guitar with a flamed maple top and set mahogany neck. Two Wilkinson humbuckers with coil split and phase inverter! More info on Giannini website. I have already ordered mine!Thanks for the heads up, Henrique. It certainly is a very good looking guitar and a refreshing change from the same old designs that get trotted out time and time again from all the usual suspects and their myriad copyists (earlier today I was looking through a bunch of Gibson's new models for 2013; they were ALL variations of Les Pauls and SGs).
Shape-wise it's reminiscent of the Ovation Breadwinner but without the rear cutaway. Of course the design is based on Giannini's own now legendary Craviola acoustic guitars, which have to be the coolest design for an acoustic guitar EVER.
For those who can understand Portuguese:
Now, I defy you to deny that those are indeed some very TASTY guitars. (Wish we could have heard them in the video clip, though).
