About This Listing

1941 Kay model 55 cello.  3/4 size.  Serial number 9105.  Makes a wonderfully rich deep tone.

Body is in really good condition for nearly 80 years old.  There are scratches in the finish, bruises on the edges, a crack on the soundboard, a crack on the side panel, and in places chipped laminant, but overall the pictures show its condition.  Bakelite tuners are in great shape, C-D-A have great friction and stay in tune but the G-string tuner is loosing friction.  End stopper assembly is original and works. 

New parts are the tailpiece and fine tuners, maple wood bridge, and Pro-Arte D'Addario strings.  Plus a newly installed, hand cut ebony nut.
