Comments:

Vázquez website (FB+S, plus various details; initially [before restoration] FB+S body only [color])

Blond fingerboard and tailpiece with full-length geometrical inlays (initially black FB+TP with diagonal ends nearest bridge). Instrument probably acquired in 2009. Website, 6/09: Italian, c. 1700; 3/10: “the general consensus is that this instrument shows clearly the influence of Nicolò Amati”; 8/11: “In light of recent evidence, after restoration, the final consensus is: Pietro Guarneri of Mantova.” (But still no measurements)
