    34" scale . Not sure how to measure string spacing but it's 3.4cm from the center of the B string to the center of the C. I'd call it narrow.

    Well, given that 3.4cm is about 1.3 inches, that would be very narrow.

    It's 2.25 inches across the nut at the top of the neck.

    Measure from the center of the B string to the center of the E string @ the bridge. I'm thinking 18mm spacing

    According to what little I've been able to find about Mr. Mottola, he was an "experimental luthier" who apparently worked for or was associated with The American Association Of Luthiers. This bass has a wide range of sound possibilities.
