This is wonderful!. Very well played, but the amazing thing is to have the chance of listening at this wonderful guitar. And Krishnasol proves that a 74cm s.l. guitar can be used to play solo repertoire (but, obviously, not all the repertoire...). Thank you very much!!!

Jelma, the sound of the guitar suggests that the Siniers did the great job.  It is surprising to know that it is the only Stradivari guitar that is in a playable condition.

Akira, we should thank the Siniers who did the restoration and spread the news! I hope there will be an article or a book about this guitar. Best, J.
