I am going to repost this bass as the previous thread was a total mess.
I have a bass on order with Nino and just picked up another Valenti 5 so this one needs to find a new home.
Ash Body in trans white (Pat Wilkins finished, so you know it look killer)
Maple bound and blocked neck w/ legit Abalone blocks (stunning in person)
Graphite reinforced neck
Aguilar 70s wind pickups in 70s placement
Black and tort guards (2).
Bass was originally built to house a preamp and battery, but originally ordered passive by another TBer. I installed a Sadowsky pre w/ VTC and it really made the bass come alive.
Valenti soft case / gig bag thing that is really nice.
The only issue with appearance is that one pickup cover is cracked around the pole pieces. No material is missing, just sorta hairline crack. Not sure what happened, I bought it that way.
Cavitites are sheilded with paint and the bass is dead quiet. The bass weighs about 8lbs.
Looking for $1600 shipped. Paypal is cool. Shoot trade offers by me, looking for Lakland or other full size boutique basses with RW boards. Can do cash + or - depending on bass.
