Klangführer 1993, track 9.8

Back (two-piece) and ribs of birdeye maple. Hookbar. 4 pegs treble, 3 bass side. Table has significant recurve. In 12/06, displayed with quintet of violin-family instruments by same maker; museum audioguide says they are in original condition, implying that this is not, but it was used in a concert May 2017.
