    I had an Azola Scarab EUB for several years, purchased new from Steve. First class workmanship and great player. Sorry I sold it (here on TB) a while back. Too bad Steve got out of the luthier business (at least too bad for us). GLWTS!

    Ain't that the truth. I've had a couple of Steve's basses and both were outstanding....real player's instruments.
