Well, I ordered this a while ago from Nino and just received it last night. The perk of ordering a custom build is that you get literally everything you want in a bass. The color is aesthetics are amazing and the tone and versatility at even better. Nordy pups with the Aggie OBP-3 is the perfect combination for me. This is the 4h Valenti I have owned and the first built for me. I have nothing but good things to say about the others I owned, but there was always one thing I would have changed... Not this one., its perfect. I have owned a lot of great basses, lakland, fender CS, Mike Lull, and many others and Nino's stuff is absolutely on par with those guys. I'd give him extra points for always building light weight, highly resonant basses though.
