Springfels 1997 (Telemann); Springfels 1989 (Severall Friends); Springfels 1980 (18C France)

Not in Martius 2015. Springfels: Monical once said maybe by J.C. Hoffmann. Ribs at center bouts 12.9. No fold in back, just a slight curve. Open-carved pegbox back. Bottom rib on treble side not original. Top and bottom strings now very close to fingerboard edges.
