          Cesare Candi was the maker. He lived in Genoa, Italy 100 years ago. He built at least one more....

              You'd need a pretty big room for that to look right in...

                  Awesome! My first thought was it's a German thing, but they didn't do such elaborately carved bits, nor so giant or freestanding. I guess the Italians were into this style for a time, as per the work of fellow Genoan builder Settimio Gazzo.

                  Those 19th-early 20th century guys (makers and players) were truly the extended range guitar OGs . People going ga-ga over 8 strings these days? Nah.

                    It's cooler than Pat's guitar (which was made by Linda Manzer).

                          Holy koa, Batman! It's definitely more lyre-y. Got some of the old Gibson harp guitar vibes, with a bit of F5 thrown in.

                            I wonder what Michael Hedges could have done with that.
