    Builder: Valenti Basses
    Body-Swamp ash w/a quilted maple top.

    Neck-Maple/Maple. *They wouldn't cut it to look like a Sadowsky, so I had them do a Fender(Standard cut) w/no pegholes drilled. A friend & I cut the headstock from a tracing of a Sadowsky headstock.

    Hardware-Gotoh tuning machines, Schaller roller bridge, Schaller straplocks.

    Electronics-2 EMG 40 J, Aguilar OBP-1 pre-amp. A friend & I drilled the control holes because I wasen't sure how I wanted the configuration when I ordered the body.

    If you are considering building one, look for parts on eBay. I got the bridge real cheap & got the OBP-1 for $80. The body was on the Warmoth "Thrift shop & it cost $320. If you were to get one made from scratch, it would cost well over $500. The neck is unfinished which cut cost & delivery time. The total cost for building this bass was just under $900.
