This is a full size cello that I got when I first started out playing the cello and wasn't sure if it was something I wanted to do Long term. Partly made in China (body) partly custom made in Boston, USA. See below for details . As a "starter" cello I was pleasantly surprised by how the cello responded when I played it that even my teacher liked it as a student starter. I've moved on to an intermediate cello. Will include a soft case and bow together to complete the set. The bridge and entire fingerboard are actually new custom pieces I had handmade in Boston, USA, and the strings are newly replaced quality D'addario strings. These custom fitted works were done to improve the performance and durability of the instrument. Total $450cash and carry.
