Thank you very much for your comment, and the links in it. Wonderful instruments, beautifully shaped, superbly crafted, and of very good taste. One can "see" how they sound well and are easy to play. Once again, thank you very much.
I missed Frank and Tommy in person by one night. My wife and I went to Tommyfest in Kentucky for the Friday concert. Frank and Tommy performed on Thursday. It would have been nice to hear your guitar live. My experience with archtop guitars is very limited. But my favorite mandolin is a F style with an oval hole. The sound is full and balanced to me. I guess that is why I find your Gianina model intriguing. Or maybe I am intrigued by a nylon string, maple/spruce/archtop guitar because I have played a 2 classical Indian Rosewood/Cedar guitars since 1965. One quick thing, my Dad's favorite jazz guitarist was Charlie Byrd. He played a played a classical guitar. All the best, James
