Wood Butcher Posted November 12, 2022 Report Share Posted November 12, 2022 I fancy making a Guarneri model violin, but I was hoping the experienced makers, may be able to help suggest which model might be best to use, and also from which period. I have read that it is believed Guarneri used a single mould, to make all of his violins. The differences being only the edge overhang, corner shapes, and how well bent, or not, the ribs were. I’m not quite buying this, the variation seems far too great. Therefore, rather than making a generic Guarneri mould, I will want to use a single instrument, to create the patterns. I know some are much more famous than others, but for those who have access to the real instruments, which ones have you found to sound the best? Thank you in advance.
