    Guidantus, an obscure maker. (Charles Beare London)

    I had this beautiful example of a Guidantus violin, sold by Beare London, I thought I would share some snapshots.  Violins labelled by this maker vary greatly in shape an color, this is one of the nicest I have seen.  The auction house Tarisio has made available what I feel is the best photo collection of modern and antique instruments, I encourage any musician interested in learning about different violin making styles to subscribe to their online library.  A second online source is The Luthiers Library, however the dated website layout, and usability practices that would give Jacob Nielsen a heart attack, make it less then pleasant to navigate.
