    I think that my cheap crappy beginner bass (that I like :) ) is chinese, but I don't know if it's a Cremona or Palantino or etc.pp. I'm just curious...
    A little sign within the bass says something like "Mavis", "Maris" or "Mauis"(??).
    Is this a Cremona or a Palantino - or what exactly is it?? *lol*

    Here you can find it:

    My Cremona SB-1 has a label you can see just inside the sound hole. I read alot of bad press on these basses, but mine plays great? I even did side by side test with another made in China bass and a old Kay bass. This bass holds tuning, projects well, and was light on my wallet. perhaps the bad press is from upset highend bass salesmen?
