Made in the workshop of Conrad Gotz this cello is in near mint condition and it shows! This C.A. Gotz cello is from 1984. The Gotz workshop was in Western Germany and they produced some of the best student instrument models. This cello was purchased new and was only with one owner it’s entire life. C.A. Gotz used fine materials of spruce and maple on their workshop instruments. Reasonably priced cellos are becoming harder to come by as the materials are getting more expensive.
