    While I know they can't prefectly replicate one, it seems they got pretty close. Even using a CNC to add in the aging effects like worm holes and other stuff.

    I want one!


    A Stradivarius violin has been "recreated" using an X-ray scanner normally used to detect cancers and injuries, according to researchers.

    The US-based group used a computerised axial tomography (CAT) scanner on the 307-year-old instrument to reveal its secrets.

    They then used the data recovered to build "nearly exact copies".

    The team said the technique could be used to give musicians access to rare musical equipment.

    Their findings have been presented to the Radiological Society of North America at a conference in Chicago.
