In 2000, Mark Knopfler did his promotion tour
for the Sailing to Philadelphia. He also visited Brazil and appeared
in the program Video Show on 20th November 2000. The host of the show is
musician Herbert Vianna. He presented Mark a Brazilian guitar,
a Gianinni Craviola. Mark was very pleased with it. He
said: "You can tell whether an instrument it good or not just by picking
it up" while lifting it up several times. I guess he wouldn't have said
that when he concidered it a bad guitar.
Giannini is a traditional Brazilian guitar factory. The Craviola model is a premium product of Giannini made with high quality pieces.
