This Cello was commissioned by the famous Josie Parsons. She was in need of an instrument that could compete with the electric guitars in her band. Her answer was this electric fish cello that we designed using all the measurements from her acoustic cello. It is constructed of western Big leaf Quilted maple and Purple Heart. The transducer was made by Rich Barbera, and the ivory inlay on the fingerboard was designed by miss Parsons herself. The neck and body of this instrument can be easily separated from the rib outline and can be played like a bass guitar.
This unique Cello was a very fun project to be a part of and very rewarding to see that Josie doesn't have to play "second fiddle" to an electric guitar anymore.
