We are delighted to offer a worldwide exclusive ELO piece of memorabilia for sale here at www.rareandsigned.com

Now available, the original antique cello owned and used in the formative years of ELO by original member Mike Edwards.

ORIGINAL BAND OWNED Electric Light Orchestra CELLO

Electric Light Orchestra Antique Cello by Mathias Neuner V (1832-1890) Mittenwald, Germany

This antique cello is the personal and famous original stage used instrument, which belonged to the late ELO musician, Mike Edwards. 

The cello featured on many of ELO's biggest hit recordings and was played on several of their critically acclaimed albums.

Mike Edwards, used this cello extensively during his time as part of the band ELO.

Mike played with this rare instrument at the band's very first live gig in Croydon in 1971.  He played it at many venues around the world including the famous Reading Festival, legendary Top Of The Pops appearances and several European Tours.

Mike was renowned for his eccentric playing (often fingering the strings with an orange or grapefruit) and wearing bizarre costumes.

He used this cello on the following landmark ELO albums ELO II, On the Third Day, The Night The Light Went On (In Long Beach) and Eldorado.

The cello is in excellent condition for it's age and use. It is in full working order. Perhaps an ideal restoration project in the future. It is complete with the original hard case and bow, 

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) were a British rock group, who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO were formed to accommodate Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood's departure following the band's debut record, Edwards signed up and helped create that final ELO iconic sound we know and love today. Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group's original compositions and produced every album.

Despite early singles success in the UK the band were initially more successful in the United States, billed as "The English guys with the big fiddles". They soon gained a cult following despite lukewarm reviews back in their native United Kingdom. By the mid-1970s, they had become one of the biggest selling bands in music. From 1972 to 1986, ELO accumulated 27 Top 40 hit singles in both the UK and the US. The group also scored 20 Top 20 U.K. hit singles, as well as 19 Top 20 hit singles in the U.S. Billboard charts. The band also holds the record for having the most Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits of any band in US chart history without ever having a number one single.
