4/4, Crafted in 2019, New
European Tonewoods
Nicknamed 'Best Friend', this Guadagnini copy is pleasant throughout with a mature, relaxed sound. The lower register has that warm, smokey sound we all love, matched with a sweet upper register. Easy to play at an affordable price with European tonewoods throughout. "Best Friend" just wants to please you, and you won't want to put it down.

Slightly smaller body size make the Guadagnini pattern a bit more comfortable to play. The upper bout is a bit narrower than a Strad, making playing in the upper positions just that much easier. Scott Cao’s Model 750 cellos are extremely popular and never last long in the shop due to their compact size, ease of play and powerful sound. Supply is very limited.

Cello comes with a hard case and a bow.

All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda, and played before shipped, guaranteed.
