I just started reading "Violin, an Owners Manual". The first chapter is on authentication and fraudulant identification. It got me to wondering if there has been any advances in this? Can they DNA wood? Has there been a microchip developed? I would think that with todays technology there would be a better way to track stringed instruments. After all, that Strad may have made it this far but it can still be open to fraud at any point. Just curious.
