    Full description

    The wood chose for the top, a two-piece of narrow grain spruce, was carefully selected and came from Val di Fiemme, which is the exact source of most of the greatest Cremonese makers of the past. The luminous two-piece back maple with medium, deep flames comes from the Balkans. The instrument is covered by a golden-yellow varnish. It is ready to be played by an excellent musician.
    "Alongside with Ole Bull, its bold form highlights Guarneri's late work; its strong work shows the typical identity of ''del Gesù". According to Biddulph, Sainton is a master violin giving the impression of a hurried maker trying to complete his final instrument while attempting to achieve a convincing acoustical and stylistic result. A pronounced kink to the lower curved of the c-bouts, especially visible from the bass side is a typical style of Guarneri's last works. The carving of its head and F-holes are even more hurried and shaky than the others from the same period. The Fs lean towards each other and the purfling cut and finish confirm ''del Gesù's" exceptional work. This violin highlights his freedom of expression, as in his final works each head seems to be different from any other." Luiz Amorim

    By Eugène “Cuniot-Hury”  |  

    This amazing French bow offers the best classic attributes expected from this maker. The very elegantly made round stick and the neat and precise mounting make his bows well-appreciated by musicians and collectors.  In our opinion, the perfect round progression of the stick remarks as this bow's highlight.
