Guy,

That's very nice. The f holes are sheer perfection.  What is it modeled after?  I'm not familiar with Cello models much.  It has an Amati look with the corners.

Congratulations, what a beautiful instrument.

Guy is it the Strad model that you have used  a lot?

I keep getting compliments about the 2010 Lord Wilton model violin including the sound. One from a top luthier in Canada.

It's modelled after the 1701 'Servais' Stradivari cello from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington.

I wonder if  there is a feeling of sadness after selling a extra fine  instrument such as this after putting so much time and labor into it.

Well, I make my living and support my family by making and selling instruments.   Also I take great enjoyment in hearing them in concerts being used by string players.  But I do like it when my instruments visit my workshop for a check up ~ it's like seeing an old friend. : )

very nice! I remember the cello you exhibited in Toronto very well - It looked fabulous and sounded just as nice -- highlight of the show for me

Thank you for the kind comments.  That exhibition in Toronto was such an enjoyable event too.  So many players came to see the instruments and for many of the violin makers it was the first time to have their work exhibited inToronto.

Here's my copy of the 'Dushkin' Guarneri 1742 that I made in 2013.  It came back to my workshop because the owner preferred his Strad copy from me, so I updated the violin with a new bridge and soundpost. Since last week, it found a new home with its next violinist!
