Giulietti Accordion M-52 model
120 bass, 41 treble
3/4 reeds (LMM)
With hard case and shoulder and back straps.
Giulietti make superb accordions. This accordion is in excellent condition both physically and its sound. The instrument has clearly been cared for through its life. I’ve owned it for the past 3 years and have now moved on to a smaller accordion. It has a rich warm tone that the Giulietti is know for. A pleasure to play. Comes with a custom back pad, leather straps and a great back strap.
Happy to answer any questions.
Giulietti Accordion Co. was founded in New York in 1923 by Luigi Giuletti. He had learned his trade with Soprani in Italy, emigrated to the USA in 1914 and co-founded Italo-American; in 1919 he traveled to New York, worked for Galizi for a while.
When Luigi died in 1950, his son Julio Giulietti (circa 1910) took over. He moved the accordion production to Italy by the Seranelli factory, Nylux most recent and notable by Zero Sette Factory. Giulietti Corporation was active until at least 1984, by which time it was located in Westfield, Massachusetts. Julio died in 1996.
