James Bond Strad?

Two of my likes paired together, wow!  Well, sort of.  Read the article and you will see.  Interesting to note that I got to hear and meet cellist Gary Hoffman (a friend of my teacher) in the early 2000's.  He plays a cello from 1662 made by Nicola Amati.  It's known as "The Ex- Leonard Rose", the famous cellist that taught Yo-Yo Ma.  Leonard Rose, in my opinion, had the most beautiful tone known to man, partly due to this gorgeous cello.  To date, it is the most beautiful cello I have ever heard.  

I had to make the cello connection because it's important to note that 2 instruments of this quality playing together is just mind blowing. Read the article and you will understand what I'm talking about. Enjoy.
