I am doing some initial research on Simone F. Sacconi. I have found out that he was a well-respected luthier operating in New York in the first half of the 20th century. He is also the author of a violin making classic titled "The Secrets of Stradivari." I am trying to determine if he made his own violins in addition to his restoration and other luthier work. If he did make violins, can any of you professionals or luthiers direct me to a source for more information about his instruments? How many did he make? How can one ascertain their authenticity? Where are they? Thanks for your help.
