Considering it has been sitting unplayed in a cellar for around three decades, this cello wasn’t in bad condition. Some previous damage had left with it a couple of bad cracks along the front, but they had been adequately repaired and appeared to still be solid.
The main issues were the expected bridge and soundpost and a set of strings, as well as a new endpin and a little work on the pegs. Now after a long hiatus it can get back to being a played instrument.
