I know this is kind of a goofy topic, but... My bass has a label - "Handarbeit aus Mittenwald (Bayern) - Made in Germany". It is Gamba shaped, with a carved back and an E flat neck. The fellow I bought the bass from thought it was Circa 1900. The color is a medium brown similar to the color of the bass #2332 at Kolsteins. The shape looks identical as well. Is it possible to estimate the age from clues on the label? The main problem with it is there is a big crack in one of the lower ribs, with some displacement. There has been a lot of work done on that rib in the undetermined past. I don't have any real topic, just gabbing about my bass.
