Gemeinhardt releases it’s flute serial numbers – again

I just discovered that Gemeinhardt once again has posted their serial numbers. In my April 2006 post Lars Kirmser's: serial numbers, I mentioned that both Yamaha and Gemeinhardt hadn't made their serial numbers public. Then in September 2007, I was notified in the comments to my post that Gemeinhardt had just added a serial number link to their Home page (as a PDF file). However, the link to the file was subsequently pulled by Gemeinhardt from their Web site. Well, it's back!

From a brief look, it appears to be the same difficult to use PDF as before (except this time with an intro added to it and the prices removed). Here's the link:,7

Hello Yamaha? Are you there?

UPDATE (7/26/08): Joe Butkevicius has converted the pdf to Excel and posted it on flutenet:
