    I would just like to tell you all about this new jazz bass from Valenti Basses. First i would just like to say if you havent checked out Valenti Basses your missing out!! Check it out!! I was checking out warmoths website when i came across two basses nino valenti had built. I went to his website and checked out all the basses he had built prior, contacted him to make a geddy lee style bass but more modern to handle a more modern rock-metal style. I have played and owned so many basses in my 12+ years of playing and i must say it kicks ass. Solid alder body, badassII bridge, hipshot tuners, black block inlays on maple fingerboard and neck, all black hardware, sadowsky pickups and preamp, this bass will take your head off!! I mean it can cut more styles than you can imagine and might i add built extremely well. I would rate it a 10. The neck is smooth and sleek. the body contour is comfortable, and it is a breeze to play. Plus i just have to add its really reasonable priced, it wont put a massive dent in your wallet like some bass companies out there. Plus he can build just about any bass your imagination can muster up, did i mention reasonable priced. The bass is awesome, and recommend all bass players out there to check out Valenti Basses. Thanks Jason M :bassist: :D

    Nice nice.... I'm pondering getting one... I previously was saving for a Benavente, but I've been GASing for a lower cost Jazz type for awhile now... and I think this might hit the spot. I still got a ways to go to be able to afford one, but that's good, time to think about it :p. Post sound clips!

    Hmmm. Some dude named Nino Valenti you say. Sounds like a cool chap. Wonder if he'd be interested in joining our little bass forum here? :D

    Very cool bass, I can't help the feeling that I've seen it somewhere before.

    :bag:

    Nino, if I were to order a bass from you could you get matching headstock metalic blue burst?

    I did, I saw the option section, I was refering to the blue burst, because I'm not sure on the color options.
