These detail pictures are from a book I was looking at today. They are both described as double basses, the first is a very early one 1662 by Gottfried Thieckle and you can see by the FB that it's not far from a viola da gamba. But what a finish! The names are musicians and owners throughout its life. I love it. The second is a very early DB scroll described as being from from Lucignano dated 1770. Again, its probably a variety of viola da gamba but it's quite unique. I thought both were worth sharing.
