I received the November issue of 'the Strad' today with the poster of the Guarneri violin 1732, ‘Armingaud, Fernández Blanco’. On the back of the poster, the outline of the violin back appears to me not to be the ‘Armingaud, Fernández Blanco’ Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ violin. It neither matches the outline of the photographed violin or the measurements given. It seems to be another violin, perhaps some Stradivari violin? Has someone else noticed this? Or perhaps I’m missing something here.
Can someone please explain to me why there are 4 separate readings each for the belly and back arching heights in the Titian Strad poster (see attached)? I can understand the measurements with and without the edge, but why are the readings different when measured across vs lengthwise? Which reading do you use when building the instrument? Titian.pdf
