Galiano acoustic guitars were made in the USA from the early 1900s onwards. Many of the "A. Galiano" guitars were made in the Oscar Schmidt factory - which also made identical Stella labelled models.  Some were made in the big Chicago factories of Kay, Regal and Harmony. Some of them were made by independent New York Italian American luthiers such as Antonio Cerrito, Raphael Ciani, and Joseph Nettuno.
