New Giovanni Tacchi - hommage to Daniel Friederich

Post by ivan » Sat Feb 02, 2019 11:31 pm

Hello Delcamp friends and guitar lover,

Giovanni Tacchi is now making a guitar for me. This is his specialize Daniel Friederich hommage model.

A very special feature on this guitar is the cedar soundboard was picked from Andrea Tacchi's private stock and specially selected by Andrea himself.

Here are some words from Giovanni Tacchi himself about this guitar :
"Hello Ivan,
I've already started joining the boards for the top and the back plus i selected the wood for the sides and neck. A note about the top is that it was selected by my father within the storage of his private collection, he choose 2 of the very best cedar specially for you, it's a very special Cedar!"

And some words from Andrea Tacchi himself :
"We spent a lot of time searching between all my different cedar by specific gravity ( weight/volume) and sound velocity, searching for the very best efficiency for your guitar. I gave you two the best😊"

I will keep posting some pictures throughout the construction process of this special instrument. Stay tuned!!

All comments and questions are most welcomed.

Wow... that is spectacular. I've been wanting a top quality Friederich homage myself for quite a while. I can't wait to see how this turns out!

I hear his instruments are on par with his dad! That is amazing if so.

The top has the look of a master grade specimen: Very nicely quarter-sawn with lotsa silk which is pretty rare, unlike the spruce counter part.

Thank you Gian! I've tried 1 Giovanni's DF hommage guitar before. I hope this one will be even better.

Slightly out of topic, you have many great guitars! Which one is your favorite?

Dofpic and Bacsidoan,

Here in Indonesia, one of my friend own G. Tacchi DF hommage model (the one on the picture i attached). I've tried it and it has very good sound, rich with lots of overtones. It is based on 1989 original Daniel Friederich guitar.

Zupfgeiger (a fellow delcamp member) also owned 1 and he speaks very positive things about this guitar. So indeed, my expectation is quite high and i wish i won't be disappointed with this guitar.

Few luthiers around the world are now specialize in making DF model. Some of the most notable maybe Michel Belair, Giovanni Tacchi, and also our own Michael Lazar

Hi Ivan,
Amzing top! Could you tell me how long there is any waiting list for a Giovanni Tacchi guitar?

Honestly, i'm not sure about his (or even Andrea's) waiting list. I wait for 7 years for my Andrea Tacchi guitar, and around 3 years for Giovanni's guitar.
Maybe you should contact them directly to be sure about this.

One more, from closer look.
I think It is not an easy task to make those edges and corners so sharp and neat.
