Active in Barcelona from around 1699 to 1767, Guillami was one of the finest Spanish makers, benefitting from the presence of many original Stradivari and other Cremonese instruments brought into Spain while the city of Cremona was under Spanish rule. Some are branded internally, close to the soundpost on the back, ‘GVILLAMI’. He was succeeded by his son, Juan (II) (1739-1809).
