A violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini

Turin, 1772

Guadagnini moved to Turin in 1771, and the instruments made from this date on demonstrate his growing preference for slab-cut maple for the backs, and his gradual tendency to place the treble f-hole a little higher than the bass, in the manner of Stradivari’s late work.

It responds quickly and is very much a player’s instrument.
