Ferdinando Gagliano (Naples, 1724-1781) was the eldest son of Nicola Gagliano (i), but is more likely to have been a pupil of his uncle, Gennaro Gagliano. He worked on the pattern of his grandfather Alessandro, and in the style of Stradivari at a lather stage. His model is broader, his workmanship coarser than that of his father Nicola. The scrolls are beautifully carved in the fashion of Amati. The sides of instruments are higher than those made by his father, the arching, however, is lower, almost flat. Good varnish of the Neapolitan type, i. e. of a drier species, yellow, yellow-brown or red-brown. Short, open soundholes. The tone of his instruments is excellent.
