Intermediate-level cello with especially well-aged spruce top and handsomely flamed maple back and sides. Luthiers spend more time in arching and graduating the plates for improved acoustic response and full, rich tone. Beautifully shaded orange-red varnish tastefully antiqued over a golden ground coat. Eboy pegs, endpin, Despiau "C" level French bridge, composite tailpiece with integrated tuners, and D'Addario Kaplan strings. 4/4.
