World's Largest Violin

World's Largest Violin.
Twelve luthiers, from Markneukirchen, eastern Germany, are working
around the clock, adding the final details to what could be the
world's largest violin. Markneukirchen is already famous for the
quality violins made there, but this extraordinary instrument will
definitely get its name into the record books.

The world's largest violin will be 4.28 meters tall, 1.45 meters wide,
and weigh over 100 kilograms. It's an exceptional achievement,
but there's just one problem: who's going to play this thing?
Even Sultan Kosen, the world's tallest man, will have a tough time
handling this giant instrument, especially since he's not
a very talented violin player.
