In today's Craigslist; VINTAGE 4/4 FULL SIZE BASS VIOLIN - musical instruments - by owner -... Sorely tempted to go check it out - just 3 miles from me - but wanted to solicit any observations here. It looks like a German shop bass with laminate top, but it seems that laminate 4/4 basses are pretty unusual. Ignorant seller? Magnetic pickup, looks to be fairly ancient?! Can't identify the strings. Ball end, red tailpiece silk, yellow pegbox end. ? Odd dusty-looking patina to the finish on the top.
