Historical Examples of guarneri
There are three essential points of difference between Guarneri and Stradivari.
The third is the scroll, in which Guarneri is as distinct from Stradivari as it is possible to be.
It may be asked, then, if not from Stradivari, from whom did Guarneri receive instruction?
He "spots" a back on an old fiddle, in which he sees Guarneri in embryo; he secures it.
The pattern is not a copy of Guarneri, as often stated, but thoroughly original.
