I'm taking the Valenti plunge!!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bassadicct, Mar 17, 2008.


  1. After much deliberation, and saving i have decided to buy... well order a Valenti. I emailed Nino this morning but no response yet. which is wierd because every other time i have contacted him he has gotten right back to me. I'm guessing he is busy lately as his Relic'd Sadowsky is finished.

    Anyway, I am still debating what color i should go for trans white on ash or trans blue on spalted maple and ash????!!!!???? doesn't matter too much cuz it will still sound like a Valenti. Wish me luck!!!!
     
  2. Nino is a class act. Nice choice. Congrats.

    .
     
  3. i say go for the trans blue combo... and good choice too.. its amazing and conveinent how we have lutheirs and builders as good as Nino on here.

    I played a bunch of Nino's basses at the Bowlus Bass Borg. You'll be happy I'm sure.

  16. They are some nice looking basses. I use to not care for the headstock, but it is growing on me a bit. The silver one above looks really nice. Congrats on the decision, and may it calm your GAS.
