Item Description


A Best Model Giuseppe Guarneri 1710 Cello Copy!  This is a very rare and unique copy. Obviously, as you can see from the pictures, Giuseppe's cello is different with strad style cello. The f holes are shorter and influenced by Amati's style. The tone colour is also different. We have invited several professional players to test this copy. Generally, our Giuseppe copy cellos have extra clean tone, compared with strad cello. The lowest string's performance are very good and consistent. This is a really nice cello for professional players. 

  • 100% hand made by one maker from the beginning till the end
  • Well air dried maple and spruce
  • Ebony Fingerboard
  • Label reads: Liuxi workshop. (Buyer can request to remove label by enclosing a note with payment)

This listing includes:

  • One listed cello, one high quality brazilwood bow, one case.

What makes our instruments different with others?


Dry tonewood. Nowdays, it seems every seller/maker claims they use 10+ or 20+ seasoned tonewoods. We are in this business for many years. We know the secrets and see a different story. We can say that less than 10% instruments from China use 5+ years seasoned tonewood. We have seen more and more small factory/workshop use green wood(seasoned less than one year) due to price and time pressure. We stocked enough tonewood for at least 5 years usage. We guranttee all of our instruments use 5+ years seasoned wood. How to judge a fresh wood and well seasoned wood? 1. Use electronic wood moisture scanner. 2. Fresh wood smells sour. 3. Take your instruments to local violin shop. They may know. Warning: violins made from fresh woods have high risk of cracking, losing glue joints and neck wraping.


Tone quality. Our instruments have better controlled plate thickness, about 5% thicker than standard thickness. The tone of our instruments will be better and better as time goes on. Some makers use overly thinned plates. Those instruments will lost tone after several years. How to check thin/normal plates? Use your thumb to press the areas near purfling, and you will know. 


Shop standard setup.

  • Most of makers just throw factory size fingerboard on violins. They don't know those fingerboard is raw, and need to be adjusted. Ebony fingerboard directly from factory are always too thick.  bumps on surface. Inaccurate radius.

  • Our setup standard

The radius of fingerboard need to be checked

fb3.jpg picture by xwyin77 High spot area need to be lowered
fb6.jpg picture by xwyin77 .Check the smoothnee of fingerboard surface. A light concavity is perferred. More scoop on G string side. Less scoop on E string side fb5.jpg picture by xwyin77

Linseed oil polished

neck1.jpg picture by xwyin77 Check the thickness of neck with fingerboard. I can say most of other chinese seller's violins have bulky neck thickness because they use raw fingerboard.
nut1.jpg picture by xwyin77 The grooves on nut should be lubricated by a pencil. This is simple, but not everyone does it. neck3.jpg picture by xwyin77 Many violins' heel are too bulky. BG7.jpg picture by xwyin77 Check string clearance over the end of fingerboard.
BG4.jpg picture by xwyin77 Bridge feet need to be fit perfectly BG6.jpg picture by xwyin77 Bridge cutting pegs1.jpg picture by xwyin77 Pegs need to be shaped. Make sure the taper of reamer fits the taper of shaper.

See What Other Buyers Say About Our Products 

"My bow arrived safely. Thanks you. I would really like to commend your staff for the excellent craftsmanship that has gone into this bow. Because I am a violin-maker my standards are extremely high, and I have to say this bow has been made without any flaws or problems. It is perfect. Please pass on this message to your bow-maker"-----------------Philip

"I wanted to tell you that I have found your instruments and bows to be amazing quality for the price. I bought a viola from your company last year through ebay, and when I took it to have the bridge fitted, the Luthier said that the viola was worth more than 5 times what I paid for it. Your bows are beautiful and well made, too, and would cost probably 5 - 10 times more if bought from a local music shop. Thank you so much!" ---------------------------------


"I Got my bow today, I love it!!! It's carbon fiber bow I've ever played and I played many brands in the past. Please tell the maker that he is one hell of a bow maker!"---------------------------------------------Jonathan

"I want to tell you that this exquisite copy is one of your "Hallmark" pieces--a real "Grand AMATI" in every way. In a small but famous shop in Washington, D.C., about 37 years ago, I looked at 3 Nicolo Amati violins in this pattern and I can tell you that your maker has captured the pure essence of the Amati House of Violinmaking at its best! "-------------Mack
