    Last Chance Price... $1250 shipped! (Price stated is for Check or M.O. - $1,287.64 via PayPal.)

    I hate to see it go, but I have to make room for another Valenti. Nino built this for me to my specifications and it exceeded every expectation more than I could imagine. This has to go to a good home where it'll get played regularly.

    Valenti Jazz 5-string
    ==================
    * Swamp Ash Body painted Lake Placid Blue
    * 24-Fret Birdseye Maple neck and fingerboard
    * Nordstrand NJ5 pickups
    * Aguilar OBP-3 preamp
    * Controls: VOL - BLEND - MIDS - TRE/BASS
    * Volume is Push/Pull for Active/Passive
    * Toggle for Mids Frequency (200/800 Hz)
    * Hipshot B Bridge (chrome) - 19mm spacing
    * Hipshot Ultralight Tuners (chrome)
    * Black knobs
    * BONUS: The neck was recently shaved by Mike Dolan to a shallow "C". This essentially means that it now feels a lot less bulky and is much more comfortable than the typical Warmoth neck. Please see the image below for more details.
    * I'll ship this in a brand new TKL condura light case.

    Other Info
    ====================
    * Weighs just about 10 lbs
    * Passive mode is just as loud as flat EQ (the Aguilar is boost/cut)
    * Pickups are hum-cancelling
    * I took delivery in late Feb of 2005

    This would cost $1750 new for the bass, plus $150 for shaving the neck (Total about $1900).

    I'm offering it for $1300. (best price)

    Thanks for your interest!

    Warmoth necks have a little bit of a 'shoulder' to them where your thumb meets the neck (red color). Mr. Dolan shaved the neck down to the white profile. Looking at the neck, you would have thought Warmoth changed their profile!

    Clips
    Here are some clips I put together at 6AM today (be gentle when listening). Simple A-D-E blues. The low "D" is played on the third fret of the B string to get somewhat of an idea on clarity. The bass was run through a Cafe Walter headphone amp straight to MP3 courtesy of a Neuros Jukebox. I have to limit requests for clips as I don't have a lot of time, but if I do I'll post 'em.

    * Fingerstyle - Both Pickups - Flat EQ LINK
    * Fingerstyle - Bridge Pickup - Flat EQ LINK
    * Fingerstyle - Neck Pickup - Flat EQ LINK
    * Fingerstyle - Bridge Pickup - 25% Bass Boost LINK
    * Fingerstyle - Both Pickups - Passive LINK
    * Fingerstyle - Bridge Pickup - Passive LINK
    * Fingerstyle - Neck Pickup - Passive LINK
