Comments:

Already set up to play when purchased, with very short fingerboard; but neck and head not original. 2-piece table with 2 wings. F-holes very similar to a Gasparo da Salò viola. (Body widths taken on back.) Dendrochronology gives latest dates of 1512 for youngest growth ring on bass side, 1515 on treble. (Bertolotti’s dates are 1540-1609.)
