    Sorry for asking, but I am really at a mess... Is Solano Klotz a luthier or a company?

    That is a steal....has to be less than Rumano charged to make it. I have my Solano Klotz insured for $18k.

    Do you have any dimensions on the bass?

    That's a pretty tiny mensure for such a huge instrument. There is supposed to be a direct correlation between body length and mensure...

    I was just looking at a few Prescotts that were all in that ballpark sizewise.

    A Prescott with a 41" mensure? Must have been cut-down. Most of them I've seen have been around 43"

    I actually really like the small string length.

    What is the rib depth at the neck block?

    Why would someone like a small string length? I've found the actual playing difference between 41-42 to be not noticeable if the bass is set-up correctly with a thin neck. The sound difference however between 41-42 is quite huge especially if you want a C-Extension to speak nicely. I'm also 5'6" with small hands and I would never want a bass under 42"

    I don't think you guys are making this bass seem very attractive when you talk about alleged shortcomings of a shorter string length. Maybe you could take up this in another thread, in a more appropriate location. I'm sure the bass sounds great, Solano is a fine maker. I also know plenty of folks with smaller hands that would really appreciate the shorter distances. I'm sure you meant no harm but think about the seller.

    I am actually praising this feature, and was asking another question because I found this to be a very good bass for the price.

    I appreciate your looking after the fellow TBer. I also appreciate the politeness of your post.
    You are right about no harm being meant.

    6" at the neck block.
    All this discussion of mensure vs. sound is pretty much a waste of time since the overall sound of any instrument depends on so many things. I've heard basses with 43" mensure that sound terrible, BTW.
    This bass sounds great.
