    Looks to be a not terribly-good homemade job

    Here's altavista's translation of the text

    Everything up to mechanisms themselves manufactured. Korpus from plywood. Sounds actually like a retort bass, can be played reasonably. Is stable, the tendency holds. Stahlsaiten, mensur: 1m = 100cm. Equipped with customer, thus PA suited. Entire height approx. 2m. only collection or distribution = 0.30 DM / distance km upto max. 100 km. Buyer pays Ebay fees.

    Gotta love that "Buyer pays Ebay fees" part.

    On the other hand, the high bid is currently at ONE (1) Deutschmark. Not sure what the exchange rate is these days, but when I was in Germany in the late 80s, that's about 40 cents american.

  2. Are those f-holes styrofoam? :eek:

    It doesn't even look like it's in 3-d...like it's simply a plywood top sheet and that's it!

    Actually for 1DM that's pretty cheap firewood.
