stradi-various!

 yes! various.........

i have a colleague at the suzuki violin school in Egypt who is very proud to own a stradivarius instrument..he bought it,neat shiny and great..and after a year or something,the fingerboard turned WHITE!!..as a result of practicing 24 hours 7 days he says...but how would a strad do that??...

i took his violin and looked inside..i expected to see the word (stradivarius) carved in the wood...but it was a ticket glued on the wood..which read (antonio stradivarius...made in czeckoslovakia).....i told my sister it's a ticket and it's not carved..she told me that it's not genuine stradivarius....if so,if really it is not original,so be careful when you buy strads,,,,

if i am incorrect just correct for me...i don't think that it's really stradivarius..
