Guerrini Superior 2 President Model
One of the BEST Acoustic Accordions

Dear Accordion Friends,

There are many nice instruments that can keep us satisfied and inspired. However, once you come across an exceptional quality accordion you know it from the first chord you play! We all deserve to find our ultimate accordion, the accordion we will never part with. Fortunately, we have different preferences and this makes the accordion world as exciting and colorful it is. I have found MY sacred accordion and I know how great it feels to be able to hear that dream sound each time you play. I am sure someone will soon feel the same way about the accordion I am presenting to you now.

The President remained Guerrini's top of the line model. The instrument I am presenting here will make any accordionist proud.  The visual appeal and spectacular tonal tonal power are enhanced by flawless mechanics and excellent compression. The accordion was serviced at the Accordion Gallery in November 2017 

Guerrini President models are difficult to find. Professional musicians in Europe love them for their reliable performance, durability, and tonal quality and power. The 1980's models sell for 7000-8000 Euro ($8400- $9600). This particular instrument looks fabulous with clean and shiny body, excellent mechanics, and a sound to remember. It is offered with a full year warranty serviced at the Accordion Gallery in Landing, NJ.

The only visible wear is on the side bass cover (see photograph below). The black paint has spatially faded over the years.
The cover is made of aluminum and a coat of spray paint should restore its original condition.

Let's take a look inside this beautiful accordion. The interior is clean and nicely varnished.
The body and reed blocks are made from solid aged wood. The Cagnoni reeds have genuine leather reed valves.

The close-up pictures of the treble and bass reeds show a very interesting feature. The reed plates have a brass
inset at the place of the rivets. This allows for a better grip and more stable voicing of the reeds. I have seen this
only on several Sonola accordions. I think this Guerrini was made in 1983 (serial number 03831). Guerrini bought
Sonola in 1971 and implemented some of Sonola's features.

The large bass reeds are in a tone chamber reed blocks. The earliest accordions I have seen with this design are
some Hohner Morino models from the 1950's. The bass side tone chamber was implemented widely by Guerrini
in the 1960's resulting in a better bass that the direct Scandalli Super VI competitor model.

The white powder on the first bellows fold is from the buffing compound. I noticed it after taking the pictures. It cleaned very easy.
