"Mr. Arnold's Amati is a characteristic example of Nicolo's usual model. It is in a truly remarkable state of preservation, even retaining its original neck, which has been lengthened to meet present day requirements by the insertion of a piece of new wood where it is morticed into the shoulder block. The golden-orange varnish is still plentiful on back and table. The one-piece slab cut back is of native Italian wood."
