    I've never seen a wood top berger, heck I've never even seen a top-bolt XL2/5. I would think that if it really was a prototype the seller would have had it authenticated and it would be selling for a lot more than it is. At any rate, very cool and thanks for posting.

    He had it appraised and consigned for 3400$, and attempted to authenticate it through both Steinberger and Gibson, but neither of them have the serial number specifically. The number is consistent with the time the seller said it was bought. I don't think I've ever seen an eBay post with such detailed information and such thorough pictures.
  3. I've seen Hohners, but not the real article.
