    Calvin Turner used to own it and toured/recorded with it extensively. If you search Marc Broussard on youtube you'll probably find clips of him playing it. The only changes I've done to it was I had Carey change the coils to BEA/DG prior to shipping it to me.

    * 34.5" scale with 10 " to 20 " radius
    * Black finish on alder body with matching headstock
    * Madagascar rosewood fingerboard
    * NPJ5 pickups with volume, blend, tone, treble, mid, and bass. (Aguilar obp-3)
    * No pickguard - rear rout

    It has a ding along the bottom edge (made presumably by Mr. Turner) and a tiny spot on the headstock (which Carey colored in). It's got superficial player wear which shows up on a black bass. For example, there are several pickstroke lines on the face. Here are some pictures I took last week.

    In the picture below, the three flashes are of course glare. The whitish line near the second knob from the right is the crack in the finish. It's made to look worse with the flash, but you can feel it.

    I'm selling it because I've ordered two custom basses from Martin Keith. I currently have only one good hard/soft case for shipping (a TKL in excellent shape), so if I sell the Valenti first, this one will be off the market until I get my stuff out of storage (which could be a couple months from now). Currently the bass has D'Addario Chromes; if you prefer rounds, I probably can include another set (new) as well.

    Price drop to $1750 (plus shipping if you're not local). International shipping is okay.
