Would you please give a look at these three cellos?
If one can manage to pay for either of three, which would you recommend?
I was told that the first cello is from France (First three pictures).
The price of this one is rather moderate compared with the other two cellos: 7,500 USD (not 75,000USD).
The second (4th, 5th and 6th pictures) and third cellos (7th and 8th pictures) are far more expensive.
The prices are about 50,000 - 60,000 USD.
I was told that one was made in Germany and the other (perhaps the third one? I am not sure) in Italy.
Are the prices exorbitant or appropriate?
If it is too expensive, how much do you think is appropriate?
Unfortunately, the certificate is not available.
I am not wealthy enough to buy an expensive cello.
But if it is worth the price, I can cut down on my spending for the coming years.
So which would you recommend?
I am considering buying the second or third cellos.
But the first cello has a fine sound. So I just ask your advice if the cello is worth to have regardless of whether I choose the second or third ones.
Thank you in advance for sharing your expertise.

3. Italian (?) (50,000 - 60,000 USD).. I am not sure which one is Italian between the second and third.
