My wife has wanted to play cello for years.  Finally was able to get one for her.  I may give it a go as well, but I'm not sure I can abide the 5th tuning spacing.

I love the sound as well but I'm not sure if I try playing it that I would be able to adjust to the intervals between strings

I too love the sound of a cello.If you decide to mark the intervals just do it on the side of the fretboard as tape across the fretboard can sometime sound out of tune.Oh ya you get use to it,went thru that when I started playing uprite bass.

I get to play along with a cellist each week.  It has been a joy for sure.

I also play bass.  Intervals are a 4th up, 5th down across strings for same fretboard position - that's what I'm talking about.  The cello is a 5th up, 4th down across the strings.  That's the part that I think would mess with my brain.

So, do cello players go thru the whole engleman spruce versus Italian spruce, hog vs rosewood, ebony vs rosewood, std bracing vs forward shifted controversies or have cellos become standardized more or less?

Are the strings nano-coated gut?

Apparently it's similar talk, from what I can tell.

I believe the latest is actually Wood vs. Carbon Fiber.
