  2. Looks Germanic, maybe Bohemian or Tyrolean. It's hard to guess how old from that photo, maybe early 1900s?

    Yeah, i thought about Bohemian!
    Maybe it's worth to bid a couple of hundreds!
    Most likely, i won't lose any money if i'll sell it afterwards.
     
  4. Based on that picture I would raise my max bid to at least $1,000. The belly has suffered some significant damage and questionable repairs, and if the rest is similar it would seem likely that a significant amount of work would be needed to render a stable, good-sounding bass. But the outcome after a restoration (if it's actually necessary) could easily be a fine sounding pizz bass worth several times that amount. That's my guess from the one little picture anyway.

    I'll be watching the auction closely!
    right now i have the highest bid on $8 and have the maximum at $150. It will probably go way over that, though. We'll see how long i can hold it! The auction ends at 1st of august.
