    Sold me some pickups a while back, shipped quick, and in much better condition and quality than he described. Nino's a great guy no matter what, even for going to concerts with ;)

    Ive already made it clear that I agree with both of you.

    He sold me one bass, and I ordered another from him because of how impressed I was with the first.

    Very good with communication, quality work, and a nice guy.

    Great guy and easy to do business with. Very trustable. I bought my Sadowsky Vintage 5 from him.

    Keep him away from the mirrored pickguards!
  7. I bought from him: Atelier Z 5 string Jazz Bass
    He bought from me: Lakland 55-63, Ampeg SVP-BSP

    As a buyer, Nino paid right away. As a seller, I got exactly what he described in a timely manner.

    he built my "El Nino" bass when I shipped him the parts. It is easily the best bass I've ever had in my hands.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I know I've lauded him many times and I probably sound like a broken record, but Nino's basses are fantastic! I owned one of his first jazzes and it was the best jazz I ever owned, hands down. My bandmates were shocked to learn that it was a passive.

    Great bass builder, solid dude, great reputation - you pretty much can't ask for anything more. If you're looking for a high-end (but reasonably priced) jazz bass, go with Nino's Valentis. I'd buy another one from him in a minute without thinking twice.

    I think we all know what a great guy Nino is, but for the record, I purchased some tuners from him for a great price and they arrived with the quickness. Thanks Nino!

    Nino...what can I say that hasn't already been said somewhere on TB. This man goes the extra mile and a half to make sure you're happy with your bass. He's a great partner in building a custom instrument, helping you realize the vision you didn't even have. :D His service, communication, and not too shabby product would not have me hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

    Wow... I can't believe I forgot to leave feedback for Nino. I spec'd out and bought a 5-string Jazz a few months ago, and have to say the process, communication, and end product were flawless. Nino is a great guy to work with. I enjoyed the experience and his attention to detail so much that I had him work on another bass of mine, and it turned out even better than I imagined.

    I'd recommend Nino's basses and work to anyone.

    Gah I forgot as well

    I've bought 2 basses of Nino

    Valenti Number 5 - http://www.valentibasses.com/ninos/blue1.jpg

    Valenti Number 3 - http://www.valentibasses.com/ninos/Valenti_Vintage_4_001.jpg

    Both I got within 3 days of there completion and that's impressive NYC to the UK in 2 days :eek: both times as well :eek:

    I also bought an Incase Dub Bag off him and he shipped one of my basses in it.

    He has done various mods on the basses as they were instock models and I wanted some tweaks doing, he was very helpful and does excellent work.

    These basses are the best basses I've owned and played so far, a must for any one looking for a traditional fender style bass with that extra oomph.

    Great Guy (Needs to work on his British slang tho :p ) pleasure to do business with makes you want to buy more off him.
