Antonio Stradivari baroque Guitar 1679 – an excellent replica – fine and original sound!
Stradivari was not only famous for his violins. He also made guitars and other plucked instruments.
This replica was made after a Stradivari from 1679, which is in the museum of Cremona.
A wonderful and very well done replica by Francisco Zarco (Spain).
Stradivari model 1679
Scale length: 653 mm

This guitar is a very nice copy, because the builder has really thought about how to make baroque guitars available for the modern guitarrist. This guitar can be tuned as a normal guitar or in baroque tuning. The cedar top is a very nice variaton too and give this guitar a unique sound.
The sound is really surprising – transparent and light. Very clear and absolutely charming. The guitar also has good sustain and captivates with fine and sweet tones. The cedar gives a nice and warm touch to the sound.
It is an absolute pleasure to play this fine instrument and let it take you to faraway places and times gone by.
