Built during Joseph Guarneri del Gesu's most mature period, the Alard Guarneri del Gesu of 1742 remains the best preserved of all his works. It is now in the Cite de le Musique, Paris, France. The brothers Hill, in their classic book Violin Makers of the Guarneri Family, included that violin among the dozen finest examples of his work. Dr. Ervin has had the privilege of examining and measuring that instrument extensively.

The instrument illustrated is owned by Dr. Taturo Udagawa of Harvard University.

This model can be commissioned now. Please inquire.
