Antonio Stradivari (1644–1737) “The Rawlins” guitar, 1700, Cremona, Italy. The famed luthier (stringed instrument maker) Antonio Stradivari built a handful of guitars, of which four are known to survive. Stradivari’s guitars are the earliest known guitars that use the same basic wood choices of spruce for the top and maple for the sides and backs. These are the same woods used for violins, and are standard wood choices for modern day archtop guitar builders.
