A change of info here.

I read in Paul Balmer's book that after about 1980 Stephane preferred to use his Giovanni Guadagnini (circa 1750) violin, which is now displayed (along with 3 guitars attributed to Django)in the French music museum.

Does anyone know exactly what museum this is, and have a website address? Thanks!

I suppose it is the French National Conservatory Museum: Musée de la Cité de la Musique

Guess I was hoping there were close-up images, but I couldn't find anything. Ahh well.
