4/4 Louis Guersan Violin

4/4 Louis Guersan Violin

This instrument is attributed to French luthier Louis Guersan - a descendant of a family of luthiers whose ancestry in the trade went back a
hundred years. 

(Universal Dictionary of Violin & Bow Makers by William Henley)

It has received extensive re-modelling work by the acclaimed repairer Georges Chanot who worked in Paris from 1833.
This exceptional instrument is suited to the intermediate to advanced player, and features an extremely sweet & warm tone.   
The high arched, high quality spruce top exhibits beautiful F-Holes and purfling, which is mirrored on the lightly figured maple back.
The quality of workmanship on this instrument is a special feature. There is also evidence that the instrument was enlarged at a later time, to fill out the upper bouts & extend the upper bout radius.
"A joy to play."

 *NEW YORK, NEW YORK*

 

International Jazz legend Christian McBride is now the proud owner of an original Benedict G. Puglisi Double Bass. This Bass landed in the USA early this month and is now being played by Christian. 

 

The 2012 Vincenzo Panormo carved back Bass was first trialed by Christian in Melbourne when he was a featured artist at the 2013 International Jazz festival.

 

It is truly an honour to have an original instrument with this amazing musician. We are sure that there are some amazing things to come from this relationship.
