    Well, after much research and advice from fellow TB members I am the proud new owner of a Laminate New Standard La Scala. Living in Victoria I searched locally for a used one with no luck, so decided to buy one and have it shipped to Seattle for Pickup.

    I was advised by one of our TB members (you know who you are) that he had played a fine example in Zachary Martin's shop in Pawtucket and that I should check it out. The rest is history… it arrived safe and sound, Customs was not too much of a hassle and the bass has a great punchy growly sound that I was looking for.

    My only regret is not being able to visit Zachary's shop in person, being a woodworker I would have enjoyed snooping around the shop, however there is a cool video for anyone that is interested.

    thanks TB!
