Superior 2 Model
One of the BEST Acoustic Accordions
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 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.
This Guerrini Superior 2 accordion was built
in Italy in the early 1980's. The instrument was serviced at the Accordion
Gallery in March-April 2020. It is clean, well voiced and tuned and
features flawless mechanics and excellent compression. The rich and robust
Guerrini tone is truly memorable and once you've experienced it you remain
attracted to it.

Dropbox file). Please, listen with headphones for full
appreciation of the tonal quality and richness of the instrument.
Guerrini models are difficult to find. Professional musicians in
Europe love them for their reliable performance, durability, and
tonal quality and power. This particular instrument looks
great with clean and shiny body, excellent mechanics, and a sound
to remember. There are two minor cosmetic issues that I will show
in close-up photographs below. A few keys top in the middle of the
keyboard had small rough spots from fingernail marks (now buffed
and barely visible). On the upper bass side very close to the bass
strap there is a small nick in the celluloid (see pictures below).
The accordion is offered with a full year warranty serviced at the
Accordion Gallery in Landing, NJ.

fingernail marks. I buffed the keys and

above as well as all other pictures).

slight indentation after the buffing (photo above).
