A Violin by Giancarlo Guicciardi
Certainly the most famous of the pupils who studied with the great Ansaldo Poggi of Bologna, Giancarlo Guicciardi’s violins have become well sought after, both for their quality of sound as well as the exceptional craftsmanship they exhibit. His work so closely resembles that of his late master that he famously had a quartet of instruments that he had entered into competition in 1969 booted after the judges accused him of entering his master’s work. This violin is no exception, and given the meteoric rise in the value of Poggi’s work, a strong collectors market exists already for Guicciardi. This violin is in mint condition, full of original varnish, with documentation back to the original purchaser.
