    Getting a new bass so have to let one go. Bought new last year, absolutely no issues. Though I've gigged with it a number of times, it still looks brand new. Feels like a work of art in your hands with the mother-of-pearl neck, sparkle blue finish, etc. Very popular with audiences (and lots of comments from the ladies!). Made in Korea.

    Sounds great with strong low mids. Dunlop straplocks installed. Professional set-up by David Shepherd of Level Frets Guitar Works. Non-smoking home, etc. etc.

    Price is [DEL]$475[/DEL] $435!!

    From the Italia website:

    Maranello basses boast a unique tonal spectrum from the harmonically positioned pickups and fantastic string-to-body coupling from the massive bridge assembly. All feature Italia’s unique floating control plate, stop tail/bridge combination, and two Wilkinson Bass Humbuckers.

    Neck: Bolt on Neck w/Hardrock Maple
    Fingerboard: 22 fret Rosewood
    Scale Length: 432mm / 34”
    Body: Agathis Tonewood
    Pickups: Wilkinson Bass Humbuckers
    Bridges: Combination
    Headmachine: Italia Die-casting
    Optional Finishing: Mother of Pearloid Back

    Noticed that the tuning hardware etc. looks gold in the headstock photo. It's actually chrome.

    I wish I was in the market for another bass. I've always admired these.

    I can definitely see how this bass would score big points with the ladies.

    I have one, it's sweet. Deeper, lower tone than one might expect, great rock bass!

    Thanks, ModuMan. Yeah, I'm surprised it hasn't sold yet, especially at this price.
