Linda West 'Aspire' Solid Hand-Carved Cello
Recommended for the Beginner to Intermediate Cellists For the 'Aspiring' cellist in the family, this model is a step-up from our 'Inspire' model. Cellos from this model are built with the same craftsmanship and care as more advanced cellos, including: fully hand-carved, highly flamed solid tonewoods, hand-inlaid purfling, and genuine ebony fittings. Each instrument is finished with a hand-applied translucent amber varnish and, like all cellos that come through our shop, they are completely hand setup, tuned, and played.
Comes with a hard case and your choice of a graphite or brazilwood bow. Hard case is available for the following sizes only: 1/2, 3/4, 7/8 or 4/4. Smaller sizes will come with a gig bag.
Cello available in the following sizes: 1/10, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 7/8, 4/4 (full size)

Photos and soundbytes are only representative of this make and model. Your cello will be completely unique in appearance and character due to the nature of natural tonewoods.
