  2. Up until a year ago, I had the Maranello bass. I really loved it, and it sounded great, but I rarely gigged it, because the way it hung on a strap combined with the 34" scale made 1st position kind of a chore (if it was medium scale, it woulda been better.)...the comfort factor was lost (for me) so I sold it....regretfully. Loved the look, and it begged for live shows...
