    Hi everyone,

    I've decided to part ways with my Valenti #61. It has served me well, but I'm going to be going in a different direction. I've found that, while I love the tone, weight, and looks, the traditional J bass V platform isn't as comfortable to me as some others. As such, I'm unloading my two J-style 5ers.

    Here's the specs:

    Swamp Ash Body w/Spalted Maple Top
    Natural Finish; finished in poly
    Maple neck w/Ebony fretboard; finished in Nitro
    34" Scale
    12" Radius
    Graphite Reinforced neck
    Nordstrand Big Split Pickups (custom EMG 40 size)
    3 Way Mini Switch, unwired (could be a kill switch)
    Aguilar OBP-2 preamp
    Black Hardware (matte black)
    Hipshot A Style Bridge
    19mm String Spacing
    Hipshot UltraLite tuning gears
    Dual-design StrapLocks
    Weight: a very light feeling 9lbs

    Includes SKB Freedom HSC in very good condition.

    FS only: $1,600 shipped CONUS obo; international shipping possible but will require specific quote.

    Sorry about the picture quality; I am not cut out for indoor photography, and it's too cold to subject this bass to the cloudy outdoors right now.

    This is my old bass. Interesting tidbit on this one; The neck was worked on by Nino and Roger Sadowsky.... This one has some Sadowsky blood in her!

    A great player indeed!

    Good luck with the sale...

    I saw this when it was up last time and LUSTED after it. It's spec'd exactly like I'd want one built!
    I'm seriously thinking about moving things around. But GLWTS! If it sells, I don't have to make really hard decisions...
  4. What is the neck profile like on these? I have a similar styled Warmoth bass with a neck like a baseball bat that's giving my hands grief, so looking for something a bit slimmer to replace it and this looks killer!

    Thanks for the added info, doctor! Also, this bass is worth moving things around for. :thumbup:
