A settlement was made and the Stradivarius was returned to UCLA in 1995.|

Five 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. 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

There are two known extant Stradivari mandolins. The Cutler-Challen Choral Mandolino of 1680 is in the collection of the National Music Museum at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota. The other, dated ca. 1706, is owned by private collector Charles Beare of London. Known as Mandolino Coristo, it has eight strings.
A Stradivarius bow, The King Charles IV Violin Bow attributed to the Stradivari Workshop, is currently in the collection of the National Music Museum at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota. The Rawlins Gallery violin bow, NMM 4882, is attributed to the workshop of Antonio Stradivari, Cremona, ca. 1700. This is one of two bows (the other in a private collection in London) attributed to the workshop of Antonio Stradivari.
