Five[156] complete guitars by Stradivari exist, and a few fragments of others—including the neck of a sixth guitar, owned by the Conservatoire de Musique in Paris.[157] These guitars have ten (doubled) strings, which was typical of the era.

The Sabionari guitar by Antonio Stradivari (1697), currently the only playable Stradivari guitar, is contemporary to the early painted violins “Sunrise” and “Hellier”. At the beginning of the XIX century, like many other baroque guitars, it had been redesigned to follow the instrumental practice. Recently it was restored by Lorenzo Frignani to the original baroque configuration with five double strings. The Sabionari Stradivari is owned by a private collector[156]
