    There are few strads left, - and they sell for around £100,000 to £1,000,000 It is generally a musicians joke, never mind!

    Who in the name of god would pay that sort of money for a violin???

    The world is a terrible place. If people are paying £1m for a violin, then the world is completely f*cked.

    Personally I think strads are over rated and like the instrument (very inferieor as it is) thaty I play but then again I have never had the chance to play on a strad to appriciate the full beauty!

    I do, but I think that's ridiculous too. Don't get me started on footballers. There are people half killing themselves for a few pounds a week so that their children don't starve to death, and footballers are earning millions for kicking a ball around. It's fundamentally wrong. Much like the thought of some inbred tw*t paying £1m for a piece of wood with strings on it.

    There speaks a philistine. If you had money enough, why on earth not spend that kind of money for a priceless instrument, made by the most famous, arguably most skilled violin-maker the world has ever known?

    Edit: Personally I'd go for one of his cellos, but then I am biased...
