Cello Neck Replacement

If I had time to learn how to play another instrument, it would undoubtedly be the cello. Luckily playing bass has many of the same movements and concepts as cello playing; so I can get around well enough to repair and adjust cellos.  I recently had the opportunity to replace the neck of a cello with a "precarved" neck. These are sold with the scroll and pegbox mostly carved and the neck is left oversized to fit most cellos.  I love doing these big kind of projects because its very technical and challenges me to do the best work I can. Below are some pictures from start to finish. Enjoy!
