Very very good work, a master work!

I really enjoyed knowing how to make that frieze on the periphery of the head. Is it done by hand?


CONGRATS!!
Yes. A master work despite he is still very young.
You are correct, it is all done by hand. It is amazing to see how neat and precise every corner and details of the headstock.

Hello friends!

Almost finish.. He said now he will let the guitar settle under the string tension for 1 month, examine the sound during that period, and after that do some final set up / adjustment.

Comments and questions are most welcome!

Thanks.. 😀

I will, Tanong.
If i receive a good guitar that impress me, i always post a review here in Delcamp. But if the guitar is terrible, usually i won't post any review. 😁😁

Hello Gregory,

This guitar is almost finished. Giovanni just sent me some pictures 2 days ago. The only thing that he have to make is the carbon fibre saddle (Tacchi family usually provide 2 types of saddle : traditional bone and hybrid bone - carbon fibre).

I would like to post some more pictures on my social media soon, but here is 1 picture :

Some of my friends who already have a look on this guitar said Giovanni's craftmanship is outstanding. Super clean and neat.
They also said the french polish is absolutely perfect.

Yeah, Giovanni is learning fast! I watched a short clip on YT with Carlotta Dalia playing a new Friederich from Giovanni. Great sound, is that yours?

Just ask Carlotta and Giovanni. It is Giovanni's personal guitar. Very similar with my guitar, the difference is only the wood for back side. My guitar is Wenge, and the one that Carlotta play is Indian RW

I expect the wenge will have a little extra pizzazz to the sound. Love the look of wenge close up. The pictures usually don't do justice
