Blagodatov 1972, p. 90

[Unpublished, from museum: FB+S]

Repair label: “Repariert Georg Tiefenbrunner in Munchen Peterplatz No. 28/1”. Back and ribs are black. Neck, pegbox, and head probably not original. Tourin: probably an arm viol. 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. (Date may be wrongly read: per Focht, Jais died in 1765.)
