After posting on the electric cello thread the other day, cellos have been on my mind. This one found me, it's very sound and solid timber throughout, maple fingerboard, AUD $180. It's new, no fb markers or signs of wear anywhere. It's one of the pawn shop's home brands. The bridge only works out of position, closer the the fb. I'm adding some height. Bote-Cote epoxy paste, colored with ebony dust. A press fit for 24 hr. With the bridge in the right spot, the C and G strings are unplayable. The bridge must be from another instrument. I played it out of position at the pawn shop and the sound is very reasonable for an entry level instrument. I want to tobacco burst this thing with a strong brown/black french polish over the existing polish. It's reversible on this one. The pegbox and scroll particularly want some dark color.
