Comparison of Stradivarius Violins 

This video compares 7 strads. The dealer points out the the ones from the Golden Period are flatter, and that a rounder cross section gives a warmer sound. I thought it was interesting.

The one in the glasses reminds me of an asian Austin Powers.

I think it would be fun to do this test with negra/blanca/coral guitars

No sh*t

Guitar comparison video would be interesting to see!

It's really incredible how these violins are in such good shape after so many years...

The Strads have probably all been taken apart, updated, modified, re-glued etc many times, keeping them relevant to current music and playing styles.

Flamenco/classical guitars don’t get regularly taken apart. The Spanish Heel and related geometry would be a major stumbling block for this I guess. Instead the poor old guitar suffers from the sandpaper merchants worshipping at the altar of shininess. There is no easy way back from removing wood.
