Galanti

Galanti archtop and solid-body guitars were produced in Southern Italy.  Some of their instruments were factory-fitted with DeArmond pickups.

Model number unknown at this stage.

 

This Galanti V2 dated 1972, is fitted with two Model 2000 pickups.  The pickups are fixed through the pickguard with self-tapping screws and further secured using an adhesive compound.  The red material within the pickup is an early adhesive used by DeArmond to hold the black coil former in place.(Photos courtesy of Stefano Aria at fetishguitars,com)
