2008 Gioachino Giusanni Algehab Cedar Madagascar


Just arrived.  There’s no mistaking a great guitar.  She has power and voice, no question.  Condition is played, but in excellent condition with nominal play wear on the top.  I performed another saddle setup, where she was simply too high, shaped the saddle and flushed her to the bridge slot.  Raised the nut 1mm, she’s playing perfectly as a result.

Giusanni labeled this guitar “Algehab”, where I have no idea what this means  LOL

She’s very bold in the old Italian character, voices clear, plays fluid, with plenty of power.  The elevated fingerboard is a bonus.  I fell in love with the guitar.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio201027-2008 Gioachino Giusanni Algehab Cedar Madagascar – a straightforward and brilliant guitar by the Italian Master.  Quite balanced, easy on the hands, effortless to make music.
