Ennio Giovanetti has been building guitars since 1998 in his workshop in Sariano di Gropparello, near Piacenza (Italy). He studied guitar making in Milan with Enrico Bottelli, where he had the opportunity to get to know many guitars by Antonio de Torres, Simplicio, Garcia, and many others. His guitars are built in the traditional way but are well recognizable by their own elements. Behind the tie block, for example, a part of the bridge was excavated to optimize the angle of the strings and thus promote vibrations.
What a great example of simplicity and elegance. For this 2021 model, Ennio chose a dark and timeless set of Indian rosewood. The aesthetics of the rosette, especially the contrast between the light inner mosaic and the dark outer circles, recall the time-honored Madrilenian design used by Santos Hernandez and Domingo Esteso in the 1920s. Remarkably, the sound also follows this aesthetic: strong, open and focused.
