well, I got this bass a few months ago, and I took it in to a few places but i have got a huge range of ideas on who made it. There is a label inside that says guadagnini, but obviously thats not correct. I will post a few pics of the bass on here. it is a very large bass (notice how high the bridge is sitting in relation to the f holes. Somehow with the high bridge, it still plays great, is loud, with an incredible tone, and a powerful low end. here are the dimensions: Body length: 47 1/2" Upper bout: 22 1/4" Center bout: 15 1/2" Lower bout: 29 3/4" pics are too big to put on here, so go to http://s597.photobucket.com/albums/tt52/italianbass/ thanks guys!
