The 4.28-meter instrument has earned a place in the Guinness World Records Book.

Twelve luthiers (a person who repairs lutes) from Markneukirchen, Germany, have crafted the world's largest playable violin, to be included in the Guinness World Records 2012 book. At 4.28 meters high, 1.45 meters wide, and over 100 kilograms, the violin takes three people to play, and the notes comes out three times lower than that of a normal violin.  See it in action below.
