Gliga3 Oil Antique Cello Outfit- Please choose a size**

Gliga's original student outfit, a fine cello finished in hand-applied traditional oil varnish. Quality materials, fittings and outfit components gives the learner every chance to succeed. Full outfit with choice of strings, deluxe padded bag and FPS brazilwood horsehair bow.

The high quality timber and traditional oil finish makes for an outstanding student outfit that continues to improve and age 

The original Gliga cello outfit, the standard Gliga III cello is finished in traditional oil finish that is hand applied, not sprayed. Oil varnish is softer and more flexible, and allows the timber to 'breathe' and age. As it is played the tone continues to improve as the sound 'opens up'. The attractive Antique colour is a lighter alternative to the classic Gliga Dark Antique finish.

Like all Gliga instruments all fittings are of the highest quality. The solid ebony fingerboard and pegs are carefully shaped and fitted to the instrument. A Wittner Ultralight tailpiece is anchored to the sturdy ebony endpin with adjustable spike, and an aged maple bridge is included with the instrument.

Upon landing in Australia each cello is inspected before being made into outfits in our warehouse. On ordering you have the choice of Jargar Classic strings or a custom set made up from Opal A & D strings with Charm G & C. The outfit is completed with an FPS Professional padded bag and the FPS Brazilwood horsehair bow.
