NEW ITALIAN MASTERPIECES SPAN THE OCTAVES!
Thanks for your interest in the unique mandolins designed and built
by Corrado Giacomel of Genoa, Italy. I'm very excited to be helping
this gifted builder promote and distribute these wonderful instruments.
I was certainly impressed enough with his J5 model to take it to
my first gig after receiving it. Lately I've been playing a custom
J3 model that Corrado built for me. Here it is on a track from my
recent FolkJazz Trio project: Beautiful Dreamer
Giacomel instruments are also available at Gruhn Guitars, Carter Vintage Instruments, Elderly Instruments and Schoenberg Guitars.
I just received three new incredible Giacomels — two J-5 mandolins (#11906 and #11615) and a J-5 mandola (#11816), all with beautiful tobacco sunburst varnish finish! The tone on each one is warm and lush and playability is exceptional. They also are fitted with the newly-designed slip on ebony tailpieces. Here's what they look and sound like:
