My new cello arrived today! Crafted by Wang Zhiguo this year from nicely figured 20+ year-old Bosnian maple for the back and sides and 200 year-old Chinese spruce for the top. The spruce came from beams that were part of a Qing dynasty home in Beijing that was demolished in preparation for the Beijing Olympics.
