Can anyone give me any info on this instrument? Of course I will go check the instrument out but I would like the opinion of the folks around here as well. This is he description that was emailed to me: 3/4 size upright laminated bass, German made, approx 1910-1920. Inner-label reads "Jofef Bitterer, Geigenbaummeifter, Mittenwald". I think that the first "F" in "Jofef" is actually an "S" and the "F" in "Giegenbaummeifter" is an "S" as well. Of course I could be wrong but some German lettering can a bit of a trick to read. The picture i attached is the only one I was sent. Thank you all for taking the time.
