This instrument was one of a handful of Mozzani guitars that was owned by his student, Mario Maccaferri. There are published photos of Maccaferri holding this specific model in the 1950s. One of Maccaferri's proteges, John Monteleone of Islip, Long Island, recalls seeing the instrument in Maccaferri's shop for decades when he would visit. After Maccaferri's death in 1993, the instruments were sold to Scott Chinery, the famous American guitar collector, where they underwent some restoration. Scott Chinery died in 2002 and this instrument, along with the majority of his collection, was sold through Michael Indelicato, a guitar buff, collector and dealer, who owned the company E* Guitars. The guitar next was purchased by the dealer Benoit Meulle-Stef, and eventually ended up with Steve Uhrik of Musurgia guitars, who had the most recent restoration and conservation work done to it. This provenance is all word of mouth, but has been passed on by several other people involved including John Monteleone and Gregg Miner of Harpguitars.net.
