German violin maker Stefan-Peter Greiner apparently makes the violins that top the creations of the Italian masters like Stradivari and Guarneri. Greiner violins are used by the best musicians in the word, and take over two years to craft. The specially selected wood for a violin is stored for 15 years before being carved into pieces. When the instrument is assembled, it is hung in the sun for over a year. The process is similar to that by Italian masters of 300 years ago. While Greiner's violins are made in small numbers and sold for about $33,000, the biggest world manufacturer of violins is China.
Photoshop violins any way you like - change their size, shape, redesign them from other materials, or give them paint jobs. In other words, show the rejected violin creations of Stradivari, if he had played with photoshop these days.
