    After mulling over this for quite a while, I've decided to put my Valenti up for sale. I just don't play bass as much as I used to and I know this bass can be put to good use by someone else.

    Alder Body
    Sherwood Green Metallic Finish w/Matching headstock
    Maple neck w/Ebony fretboard
    1 7/8" @ nut
    12" Radius
    Graphite Reinforced neck
    Nordstrand DC5 pickups
    3 way mini switch for Series/Single Coil/Parallel p/u switching
    Aguilar OBP-1 preamp
    Mint/Black/Mint Pickguard
    Chrome Hardware
    Hipshot B Style Bridge
    19mm String Spacing
    Hipshot Ultralites Tuners


    Aside from two small dings, it is in great condition. The dings are in the following pictures:


    That one is on the lower horn.


    That one is on the bottom edge of the back.

    I'm asking $1450 shipped to the lower 48.

    Nice looker. :^}

    Tell me, those Nordstrand DCs -- do you find they sound fairly Jazz Bass-y, in single coil mode?

    A small heads up: It'd be a good idea to indicate that it's a 5 string in the Subject/Header. People who are looking for a 5-string tend to scan through the boards for the numeral 5, and would be pretty likely to miss your fine offering -- I almost did.

    Best of luck with it,

    You can get a good jazz sound. You can make it sound pretty much however you want, really, it is quite versatile.

    And thanks for the advice. That line of thinking never even occurred to me. :) Unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to change the thread title.

    I should also add that it will ship in a TKL case.

    I had this bass for awhile and it is very versatile.. This was my 1st experience with Nordy pickups and I'm a big fan..
    Also my 1st introduction to Nino's basses and I was very impressed....

    I know people would kill for this bass, but we just don't have the money. I'm sure somebody will come to their senses... (it's either I buy this or I don't my bills!).

    This would be nice to get back, but I've been buying too much bass gear lately.. If thats possible....:hyper:
    It's a nice bass and I'm surprised it's still here...
