  • Comments:

    Giovanni Tacchi has clearly learned much and been inspired by his father Andrea. Constantly searching for learning, Giovanni has made violins and other guitar models apart from his Daniel Friederich hommage models such as this one.
    His wood-craft and polishing skills are as those from a maker who has been making for decades.
    Surely a force to be reckoned with for the future, this guitar is immediately impressive for its spontaneous response, strength and richness of tone. The bass has good depth and the treble is strong and immediate. It is also very comfortable to play. Well done Giovanni.
