Great Sound and Great Feel for the Price!

By Michael

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.

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!

By Gera

from Arizona

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • easy to play

Cons

  • poor materials; needs to re-tune continuously

Best Uses

  • 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.

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.

This is a great guitar!

By V.B.

from Grace, Idaho

Verified Buyer

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!
