Pietro Guarneri Violin - Good combination of tonewood and varnishing

June 21, 2009

Here's what a good combination of good choice of tonewood and good conservative varnishing can do to produce a better than good masterpiece. There's a nice touch to it with the addition of the ebony C-ring at the nose. This violin is made after Pietro Guarneri of Mantua by Guarneri. By the Opera workshop. I kept this copy for a long time before releasing it to a good old friend reseller.

Long ago I bought a 14 inched-back musical instrument; has ebony on the front and has carved shapes inside. G.G. is stamped on the back of the neck. Would you have any information on this instrument?
