Graham Caldersmith was a renowned Australian luthier who unfortunately recently passed away in October 2019, and was a pioneer of the Australian lattice braced guitars and a strong advocate of the use of Australian woods in violin family instruments. 
 
Creating unique handmade violins crafted entirely from Australian woods, Graham’s favoured design was derived from the Guaneri del Jesu 1733 model, which included arching profiles and graduations modified to optimise the performance of the Australian tonewoods.
 
Graham's perspective on violin development;
 
"The essential and acoustic design of the violin has not changed since the mid 16th  century when Andrea Amati in Cremona, Paolo Maggini in Brescia and Jacob Steiner in Absam  produced superb instruments in sufficient numbers to establish the violin , viola and violoncello as the core of stringed instruments which are the foundation of orchestras and ensembles to this day.  While the ensuing centuries saw changes to the neck and fingerboard configuration and string technology, the sounding body design of these musical marvels remains unexcelled. The comparison of the musical quality of original master violins relative to the recent and contemporary copies of them has been inconclusive and only confirms the masterful design of the founding makers."
