FS - Valenti Bass #83
Bass is SOLD!
Spring means time for change. I'm letting go of this awesome bass in order to try something new... hopefully I don't regret it!
I've had it for about a year and it really has one of the nicest playing necks I've ever had the pleasure of crossing.
Very versatile as far as sound goes... want a P bass sound? Covered. What a jazz sound? Covered. Want something else? You can probably get it.
No dead spots on the board and the build quality is top notch - as most of you know.
Enough blather... here's the specs:
Nitrocellulose - Aged Olympic White
Graphite reinforced Maple neck
w/Pau Ferro Fretboard
1 7/8" @ Nut
Nordstrand NP5 (Neck)
Nordstrand Big Split 5 (Bridge)
HipShot Vintage Style Bridge
19mm String Spacing
Hipshot UltraLite tuning gears
Super light too. I'll get the actual weight soon but it's got to be less than 9lbs.
In terms of full disclosure, the Big Split is sort of bulging a bit by the d-g strings (it's strung b->g). It's caused a bit of a hairline crack in the pup housing. Not sure why and it's mostly unnoticeable and does not seem to effect the sound. I'll put up some pics if I can capture it.
I'll ship it in a TKL Zero-Gravity Super-Light J/P Bass Guitar Case.
$1200 - a steal, really. Let's gooooooooooooo
