The cello looks to be precariously perched over a gravel drive - that takes guts.

If I had a toupe, I would tip it to MG.

I really like the gouge marks left on the scroll. Highly flamed ribs and a plain back. Just the oposite of what I would think to see. Now we have to wonder, are those plane marks you left on the plates clues as to tuning from the outside? Looks old as the hills. Cool.

Hi Oded
This cello is for a talented teen who needs a better instrument asap. To do a faster delivery I avoided a scroll graft in this case. The poplar absorbed the ground in a different way to the maple and they do look different.

Truly master level work! You really captured the "essence" with the texture and antiquing. And thank you for making a separate thread, I would not want to have missed this one.

Nice work Melvin, thank you for posting the audio also , I am always curious to hear the instruments from the makers in the forum.

I love the fast, sharp attack of your cello.
