    It's a shame Warmoth can't do white binding and blocks on a neck with a maple board. Apparently it shows up too much glue.

    So I keep hearing about valenti and his basses. Then I traipse over to his site. All I can say is well done. Beautiful well made (from what is said here) custom fenderesque instruments coming in at around 1.5 grand. If I had the cash Nino would definately be getting my order.

    Bumping this thread up, so you guys will know that I have finished my review.

    http://www.talkbass.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=721

    This is the first Valenti reviewed in the Reviews section? Why aren't people using this cool feature?

    Come on, people, let's get those reviews posted in the right place!

    I just e-mailed Nino with the first draft of my next Valenti's spec list.

    This will be my third Valenti and this one will be a guitar!

    Im waiting on a price estimate and you guys might see a thread pop up so you can help me choose the color.

    Give me a couple days and I'll put up a review for both of my Valenti's.

    sure is, yup... great fretwork. The wife says it's teal and not fond of the color ;) so using the "but I'm buying it for you" excuse won't work.

    Haven't looked yet... but I know it's quiet, so I'm sure you are corrent

    +1 Nino's got some skillz for sure!

    very playable... I'm also playing flat & wide necks myself. This neck is by no means a baseball bat, but it is a tad rounder than what I'm use to. Very nice in the hand, no issues with getting use to it at all.

    I have neither... but I'm sure you are correct ;)

    I've only played it through my recording set up. I'll be puttin git through the "tube rig" paces this weekend.

    in my first little recording session, I found the bridge pickup in single coil and the neck pickup in humbucker modes centered with the 2 band pre set to both mostly off (Nino, is that boost only?) gives a pretty wicked recorded tone (samples soon). It slaps well too (dispite my inability at that technique!).

    More to come :bassist:
