  17. Hello. Sorry for my English. I live in Minsk, Belarus. I repair guitars and made few for myself. Rock vocalist and guitarist too:) After watching videos of 2Cellos I started to like cello. My elder son started to learn play cello in music school. I was repaired your 1/4 cello (moscow factory cello). And now I think to make new cello for him. I think 5 strings cello will more interesting. Not so easy to find good tonewood in Belarus. I planning to use simple wood (plain maple). Also think to make not full classic cello But with some modern feature.
