My luthier was not happy when I told him I had purchased an internet cello. After he looked at it, though, he decided that it was a nice "step up" instrument--meaning something that was better than the rental cello I had. I compared this with other fully carved instruments available on the market and decided this was the best deal. It cost more than I wanted to spend, but I was also set on getting a hard case. I couldn't find another fully carved cello with a hard case (and all the other accessories) for the price. The instrument arrived playable (after putting on the strings). I emphasize playable, certainly not the "ideal" setup for me. The first thing I did was change the strings to a better quality. At that point I could have left it and it would have been fine--sounded great--but I put a few hundred dollars into it to change the nut height, shave down the bridge, change the tailpiece to a lighter tailpiece, etc. Now it sounds even better--the string height is the way I want it, etc. As it is setup now, my luthier estimates I could sell just the cello for about $1800. Overall I am very happy with the purchase.
