A lot, there is also another famous violin builder. I know they tried everything to find that Stradivarius sound, "'after a serious research", they also analysed the combination of the lacquer and, their violin was really good, I even think to remember they used aged wood like for a real Stradivarius
Recent study: a plague of woodworms was the secret behind the extraordinary success of the Stradivarius violin, according to a new U.S. study. They compared violins made with the same kind of wood, using MR scans, spectrography, and only in the Stradivarius violins they could make the difference. It seems that he used a crystal powder to block the worms.
and "they" are mostky the guitar gurus like Gruhn, Wheeler+the fact that The very rich Japanese buy a lot of expensive guitars, like Gretsch Penguin, and 1958-1960 Gibson Standards
