I finally did it! I just ordered my first ever custom bass. It's a Geddy Lee style jazz bass from Nino Valenti Basses. Features: Maple neck w/maple fretboard Black Block Inlays and Binding Alder Body Aguilar OBP-1 preamp Nordstrand NJ4 single coil pickups White/Black/White pickguard Chrome Hardware BadAss II bridge HipShot UltraLite Tuners with Vintage style Clover keys Hardshell case I went with the classic black for the color. I can't wait to get my hands on this thing. 1 day down, and 89 to 119 to go. I'm thinking about having myself placed in a medically induced coma to keep from going crazy with anticipation. Pictures and a review will be forthcoming upon its arrival.
