I must emerge from bass Nirvana to share these pics of my new New Standard carved LaScala. I am so pleased with how it looks and sounds! Thank you Arnold and Wil! It has Sloane tuners, a carbon fiber endpin and is currently strung with Spirocore Weichs. I am 5'3" and with the endpin completely retracted, it is the perfect size for me! The first day I had it, I had dinner with my aunt. When she saw it she exclaimed, "OMG! That is NOT a very LADYLIKE instrument!" You gotta love aunts!
