Comments:

As of 3/22, for sale at website of VdG-Gesellschaft, by Michael Pilger in Cologne (pilger-gambenbau@gmx.de): unknown origin; label certainly does not belong to it. Repair inscription by Wolfgang Uebel and varnish suggest cut down by him from a small contrabass. Body length 77.6, string length 74.
