5 or 6-string, after 'Maggini'

The original of my instrument belongs to the Dolmetsch Collection. It has double purfling, f-holes and a very beautiful, single fluted scroll.

With a string length of 98 cm it makes a good G violone, but with modern strings it can also be used in D tuning.

Body length 97,5 cm, string length ca. 98 cm.
