SKU: 26006



Giannini has such a tradition in the bass market that many place our products from the 70s side by side with the most celebrated instruments on the planet. Resuming national manufacturing would require an extra dose of responsibility, which would deal with a proudly distinguished legacy - therefore, from the beginning we were motivated to deliver to the public not only something made with the necessary care for the long-awaited return, but also one that kept an eye on in the future; that respected everything that was built over the years, but that also brought new things to those who's looking for not only nostalgia, but mainly quality. The Giannini Masterwood brings Giannini's definitive classics, those that have marked generations of musicians and/or enthusiasts, and adds to them top-notch modern complements, in a set ready to satisfy those who want the traditional, but definitively revitalized. Even those who have waited so long will be surprised – and that is exactly our main objective.

The Woods

Brazilian Cedar

Widely used in solid instruments, due to its lightness and stability. The sound provided by Brazilian Cedro is characterized by a deeper and velvety tone, excellent bright definition (as it is not very resinous), good projection and sustain. Natural wood from open forests and fields with a hot/humid climate, widely distributed in the North region, mainly in the states of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Pará and Rondônia. It has low density, medium to thick texture, pinkish-beige color, and veins forming smooth regular designs.


Used in acoustic instruments and in the creation of fingerboards and bridges. It produces pieces with good sound, beautiful finishing and excellent sustain, with a brighter tone than Rosewood, but which manages to retain the warmth for which Rosewood is celebrated. Its color varies from light yellowish brown to brownish brown, with dark veins forming characteristic and exotic irregular designs. Known for its rigidity, moderately light and very durable, Pau-Ferro is found in Goiás, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, São Paulo and Paraná states.


Heavy wood, highly durable, easy to saw and work with, it is ideal for musical instrument necks, due to its naturally glossy and smooth surface to the touch. A species of long-lived and large tree, common in secondary forests and capoeirãos, it is common in the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná, Santa Catarina, São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. It has high density, good mechanical resistance, and a color that ranges from straw-white to pale yellow.
