  1. For me as a maker to buy or invest in an contemporary colleague? Giancarlo Guicciardi https://www.liuteria-guicciardi.it/ENG/page5/page12/index.html
  2. Of course you can use a del Gesu model and keep everything symmetrical. This is definitely not a mistake. Just like you have the choice between 12 Strad models. But yes the Messiah (Style) is the holy grail (unfortunately). If you decide to enter an Antique...different World. Remember Josef Kantuscher. Everything was fine created personality with high success lifelong.
  3. Exactly the answer I expected from you. I know so many who are happy with it, and these problems you describe are new to me. But there are supposed to have been bass bars that suddenly fall around inside for the same reasons.

  5. Most Wood we seen on this sale both Maple and Spruce were bought in the 1980´s from former Wooddealer "Fuchs" in Mittenwald. The time where was enough Bosnian species still on the market. Today...hard to get. But 10k for a back or 2k for 4 Rips? No way. But some Wood wich has the outline drawing with a thick black edding-pen looks strong carpatian Mountains to me.

  7. Looks like 31mm couldn't be wrong.
  8. Hello Davide! Thank you for your nice words here. Yes you are right with the F-holes. I have no Idea who was the judge who lower down the points on me and others. As an example "Level of woodworking technique" I got 8-9-9-9-6 (the last one give me furthermore 6-5-5) But for me I was not disappointed. More funny was to show the Jury my mistakes they overseen it all . And nobody has seen my Fingerboard was Corene instead of Ebony. Yes antiquing, an endless discussion. But well when customers orders.... I will not refuse it. A part of business (when i don´t do it, somebody else will do) and passion.
  9. Thank you! No, nothing of disappointing. Murnau is the Bora-Bora of upper Bavaria haha....
  10. Try to get the photos from the Triennale on a file. Guess it will looks different as mine I took. The scroll template is just simple from a Strad Cello. (Not remember exactly). However…. Customer is happy thats the way.
  11. Long time i didn´t post anymore. But here it comes the Cello i have entered to the Triennale in Cremona. (No... not reach the final) (Tailpiece of course came up closer to Bridge after Photoshot. And.... the F-hole are a bid too straight. You all think so?
  12. Here another example of Strad Cello "Servais" from 1701. It looks like heavier stained and lesser poor-filled compare to others.
  13. And exiting the big difference to J.B. Vuillaume.
  14. I can`t copy here parts of the Book, but sure they did a great job. The examination methods are described in detail in the introduction. Bellow Daylight and Fluorescence from the Top of A. Strad. Cello "Bonamy Dobreè, Suggia" 1717.
