Hi all,

Do you know how much the accordion may costs?

I would like to buy one but I do not want to overpay.

Thanks in advance for any info related,

There are too many possible variations on this model to give an answer. It can be LMMM, LMMH, it can have MIII or not, etc. And it can be a few years old or a whole lot more...

90% of 127's were made in this configuration ---
http://www.accordiongallery.com/giulietti-cl127T ---
When Julio made the decision to import a fine line of accordions and market them with the family name, he first went to to the firm of Serenellini in Italy. The Serenellini made Giulietti's were a well made box but Julio wanted a box superior to the at the time (60's) accordion models from Excelsior, Sano, Titano and Petosa sold in the US. To accomplish this he then went to the firm Zero Sette of Italy to produce a line of accordions superior to his then competition brands sold in the US. The merge of Giulietti and Zero Sette then produced a exceptionally fine line of accordion models that were, and still are, much sought-after today.
If your badge on the center of the grill is a "Treble Clef" it is a Serenelli product, and if the badge is a "G" you have a superior Zero Sette product. Classic 127's (depending on condition) will fetch from $2000.00 to $4000.00 USD in today's market.

P.S. The accordion in the Pic's are of a Zero Sette product.

Interesting that explains somethings for me. I had a convertor free bass I got back when I was about 12....it has the G. I recently picked up a full free bass unit with the Treble Clef. I wondered why the difference. I got it for $2000, so it was a pretty good price but I turned it down once because it just had something different about it. The sound, especially the left hand reeds, are very different from my original Giulietti. I wondered why they sounded so different. To me, my original has a much better sound, especially for jazz or classical. Both say Giulietti.

Serenelli - a typo in my post ( Corrected )

Here's one with a Giulietti grill --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP5_wTiOF6w

Serenellini is a newer firm from 1978 to present.

Here`s one that recently sold for $6100 US. The 127 has always been a highly regarded accordion.
