    As far as I know there is mine and one other but mine is the nicer.

    Vinny is the real deal old school archtop guitar builder of the first magnitude.

    Check his site he might still have the only other bass.

    My Dean Stylist... purchased for $299 brand new.

  6. my own Stylist: beautiful 32" axe out of production on 2007. Too bad!


    My last buy: Eastwood Classic 4 30" scale; it is supposed to arrive at home next week. Just can't sleep at night anymore! More or less faithful copy of the Gretsch Country Classic. Check on Youtube the Ed Friedland review. On his homepage Ed states that the Classic 4 is one of the few axes to be reviewed that he could not just send back to the manufacturer!!!

    Here's my 67 Gibson EB2

  13. If you have any influence over the Tuscany, encourage them to either keep it at 30" or at least offer it as an option.
  14. I have no influence! I think they are going 34" because they will sell more; but if you just like it, this specific unique 30" sample is for sale on E-bay at 640 euro if I am not wrong... I tried it and I remained jawdropped by both the quality and the sound!!!
