I have a big boy. 44.5" mensure. 7/8 1930's czech gamba bass. Set up with Corellis and a Laborie endpin so the length is a bit easier to navigate. I almost didn't buy it because of the size, but I played about 10 other 3/4 basses in the 5-10k range, and none of them had the sound that this thing has. So I proceeded down the road less traveled. Anyone else? I think about selling it from time to time to get something more standard, but I'm only a novice, so I figure what's the difference, just keep learning on this one and it'll feel just as right as any other would. Guess I'm just looking for a little encouragement and to find out if anyone else out there has been down this road.
