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!!!!
