G. B. Giusti – Lucca 1693

This instrument, now attributed to Giovanni Battista Giusti, is at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. The evident similarities with the exemplars that are certainly ascribable to the famous Tuscan master were highlighted by Denzil Wraight. The latter’s attribution is based on the comparison of the profiles of the mouldings. It is one of the most copied harpsichords due to its wide original GG-e3 compass and typical Italian sound. It is of the inner-outer type with a cypress case.
