Subject: RE: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
Just because the instrument has one of thefamous names on it, it need not be an original. Many copies were made. You will need to find a competent authority - probably a maker/repairer of instruments - who really knows what they are talking about. Since you didn't say where you were, we can't help much more than that.
