Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have to admit that I bought this guitar on looks! But it has a great sound! The description says that it is a great "crossover" guitar, and I have been playing a nylon string guitar for years! This one has a nice rich tone! I definitely suggest it for someone like me who loves to play --- it will be great as I learn jazz and bossa nova!

By RRR737

from Houston, TX

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Ease of play, tone, feel

Cons

  • none at this time

Best Uses

  • I would use this anywhere

Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I'm new to nylon string guitars (usually play steel string). So far this guitar has been a joy. Easy to play with good action. Overall tone is beautiful. Would recommend this to anyone looking to start playing a nylon string guitar. The price, quality and service from Musician's Friends makes this a winner all the way around.

Get it!!!!

By Mike

from Colorado Springs

Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I took a chance on this because it looked so cool! Figured at that price I could sell it and not lose much if I didn't like it. Trust me it is as beautiful up close and personal as it is in the photos. I am very picky about my instruments, kind of a solid top snob, and couldn't believe I had succumbed to a laminate guitar. I am honestly blown away by the sound, both unplugged and through the Fishman pickup--unbelievable acoustic electric sound at this price point. Can't stop looking at it and can't stop playing it. I had an Alvarez crossover and really find this much easier to play with it's low profile neck and radiused fretbloard. I am already doing things with it I haven't done on any guitar and find I am leaning into fingerstyle music. If you are sitting on the fence, sit no longer. You won't be disappointed. And as always, same awesome MF customer support. I had no issues with this guitar. It played fantastic and needed no setup right out of the box. Get it!

Great Sound and Great Feel for the Price!

By Michael

Verified Buyer

Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been using it for practice (all styles). Matte finish on Satin Natural really nice. Tuners are plastic but look cool in black. Neck has great feel, might be a bit wide for small hands. Nice deep tones and resonant sound. Internal wires on mine hang down a bit and can be seen through sound hole. Some details are wanting but acceptable considering the price. Guitar sounds great overall and is fun to play.

  • short time playing on stage

Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The guitar has a very nice and modern shape; good finishing; size is perfect for begginers and is very confortable and easy to play.
Sounds very wel unpluged and attached to a PA system; it needs a fine tuning continuosly, seems like the materials are not the best quality.compared to other ones of similar price like Alvarez hybrid model.

A Long, Long Wait

By B W Irish

Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Wanted to add a classical to my collection for casual use. Did not want the wide neck that's normal for classical guitars. Found this in my search and was familiar with Giannini as I have have two '70s Craviolas - a 12 and 6. Ordered this in July 2016 and watched it continually be back ordered. Finally received end of February 2017. Worth the wait. Besides being very attractive, it plays incredibly well. Truly a "hybrid" with narrow neck. Arrived with a couple of "dings" but not enough to return. After all, I already waited 9 months!

Alot of bang for the buck

Comments about Giannini GNF-8R CEQ Cutaway Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been skeptical about buying guitars sight unseen. But thought for the price it would be a conservative risk. I was not disappointed. Other than a few very minor cosmetic issues such as pin holes on the backside finish. I am very pleased with this guitar. The walnut top with satin finish, cutaway design and electronics puts this one on the top of my favorite imports.
