Kae Sato-Goodsell Guadagnini 1785 Model Viola

This fine viola is made by contemporary Australian luthier Kae Sato-Goodsell. She has a keen eye for clean and accurate design, making refined and attractive models. Sato-Goodsell has a passion for the viola, with a particular interest in building practical and smaller models. This viola is made following a 1785 Guadagnini model. Guadagnini is considered one of the greatest luthiers in history, in league with Stradavarius. The instrument has a unique light amber blonde varnish and is fitted with high quality Rosewood fittings. It is a comfortable 15.8 inch model, yet its broad body allows for plenty of volume. Made in 2013.
