  1. It has several cracks in the lower bouts that were either not repaired or very poorly repairs. Plus other open cracks along the corners. It was sold as a cello that needed repairs.
  2. I figured they would have to be split at the very least. We’ll see how much trouble they become.
  3. I finally got around to taking the top off this cello. And the person who glued this on last should be drawn and quartered. Hyde glue for 90% and some sort of hard see through yellowish glue on the end blocks. Just ranting about that. The corner blocks are full and look original unless they were colored to look old. Thoughts?? Jesse
  4. Oh come on! Now I need one of those! Jesse
  5. I second this. I’ve had them for almost 20yrs and have found nothing (quasi cheap) that compares.
  6. I’d start at $600 if your doing online auction like eBay. Shipping $200-300 in the lower 48 has been my experience lately. If it had no major repairs needed if hazard a guess of upwards $1500 would be fair. But others with a lot more experience will correct me if I’m wrong. Jesse
  7. They still have some. But they are green now and I don’t know if they are thinner than yours. Hope that helps some. Jesse
  8. This is a really good stone to get into the Japanese Natural Sharpening Stones without paying too much. I have way too many so I have decided to thin out my collection , hence the post. Shohonyama Red Ohira 333g $95 shipped lower 48 Jesse 314-775-5245 text or message me.
  9. Good point. With Jacobs post they might have been added later to secure the cracks. I’ll post pics when I take the top off.
  10. Interesting and thank you.
  11. Yea most likely. I was hoping there was a way not too but I doubt it.
  12. I’m familiar with the fake blocks. However you can see the blocks from the edge of the rib miter that has been broken off. Why they would make only One corner real and the others fake is beyond me. So I assume they are all real. Jesse
  13. Ok now I have the cello and it’s pretty well made. Now for the first of the repairs. These look like the ribs shrunk vertically and the corner blocks kept them from moving. Is this correct? How to fix them? Do I need to free the corner blocks and then replace them and shorten if needed? Thanks all
  14. Me too haha Either way I’ll post as I go along Jesse
