  1. I am doing some work on my antique cello and the top is one piece including the bass bar. There isn't any marker mark on the instrument except an M in pencil on the inside, probably just the craftsmans mark. Would this feature of the bass bar being part of the top give a clue to what age and what country, maker? Also the top is pretty thick, 3/16th" to 1/4" in some places. Should I shave it down? The top side is pretty beaten, should I resurface it or only take it down from the inside? Thanks for any help. Jim
