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!

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!

GNF-8R CEQ GUITAR

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.

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.

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

The body is slim. The satin finish is beautiful. The neck easy to play. Great tuner. Did not like the nylon strings. I restrung with earnie ball 2047, earthwood silk & steel extra soft 80/20. About the same tension as hard nylon. Amazing sound, loud volume, responds to very lite play and good volume on finger picking or chords. When amplified l was shocked. Very inspiring to play. Never heard this sound before. Its sound can be between classical and steel string or both. Its a very pretty sound when you hear both steel string and classical. Never heard this sound before. Took the saddle down a little and plays great. Neck is wider and 12th fret is closer in to body and harder to bar chord. Great sound can be expected with good quality nylon or composite strings.

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.

Pros

  • Lower action on the strings, easy to play

Cons

    Best Uses

    • This is ideal for serious beginners
    • Wonderful for those of us restarting after years

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

    This guitar has a warm, rich sound. Lower string action and nylon strings make it perfect for beginners and for those of us who haven't played for a while and need to rebuild calluses! Really nice instrument and so glad I got it!

    So far I have been pleased with this guitar

    By Bob Sage Nelson

    from Shelton, Wahington

    Verified Buyer

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

    I have developed a problem with the tip of the index finger of my chording hand that causes it to feel numbness and an electrical volt sensation the length of the finger after extended playing. I am addicted to playing the acoustic guiatr and can play for hours because my calluses are well developed. But because of the nerve problem in that finger I thought my playing days could be through. My solution was to buy a nylon string guitar. I thought moving away from steel strings might solve my problem. I did some research and came up with the GNF-8R. So far I have been very pleased with the ease of playability. My main complaint is the wideness of the neck. Since I bring my thumb over the top of the fretboard to mute low E on some chords, I am struggling with the wideness of the neck. Other than that I am playing again and am really enjoying this guitar.

    • better strings, and needs mid range on the EQ.

    Best Uses

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

      This was my second choice and had to take it when the first choice wasnt available, i didnt want to spend a whole lot of money on this because i was looking for the Willie Nelson sound, well to get that exact sound is next to impossible but this one sounds pretty close for me, Im not a classical player so i cant comment on that side of it. This guitar is really good craftsmanship considering its under 200. the string height is perfectly set, the neck is not quite as wide as some ive played which makes it easier for me to play. it has good sound, the built in tuner works great, The EQ is satisfactory but they really sound have stepped up the fishman to a three knob EQ. All in all im very happy with this guitar for the use i bought it for. The Willie Nelson sound...

      A Long, Long Wait

      Verified Buyer

      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!

      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.
