An unusual cello by the Venice-based luthier, with a rosette that harks back to his German training and influences. ‘Every Gofriller scroll seems improvised – if he used a template it was treated as the loosest guide – yet they all have the same stance and character. This early model doesn’t show his more extreme traits, but the style is truly established. There is something very viol-like about the way the pegbox unrolls slowly and the volutes lean backward.’ – John Dilworth in the December 2003 issue.
