    Well, I was looking in my pictures folder in my computer & I had an older "Family Portrait" & it's amazing to me how many basses I go thru. Since I took this picture, I've also had/have:

    Sadowsky Tokyo RB5
    Warmoth 70's Red Jazz
    ESP J-Four (ebayer stiffed me:()
    Warmoth Shoreline Gold Jazz (Sold)
    Fender American Standard 5 string Jazz (Sold)
    Warmoth Koa Jazz Bass (Sold, actually traded)
    Warmoth Gecko in T-Blue (Sold)

    #1, I guess I like Jazz basses. LOL
    #2, I have to seriously stop playing this game of bass tag. Every time I say to myself, "No more basses cause you're only gonna sell it & still play your sadowsky's" I see a "great deal" somewhere & I buy it, play it for a rehearsal or 2 & then sell it.

    We need a bassists anonymous or seomething. ;)

    I'm hoping I'm set & I will not need to buy any more basses but it's hard especially working @ Sadowsky's & playing just about every single bass that is built. :(

    I'll post a new Family portrait in a while.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    And I own the one on the upper left!! :D

    hey Nino- I've been meaning to tell you. I tried the bass out Sat night in a band I've just hooked up with and really gave it a workout. Man, that thing sounds sooooooooooooo good!!!!! Plays incredibly, too!

    It is now one of my main basses. And, against your recommendation, I did go ahead and put several coats of urethane on the headstock, over your logo, using spray urethane. Happy to report that it worked like a charm and your name is now immortalized on that bass, as it should be. :D

    IMO, It's not worth selling. The bass is very played & I wouldn't get the price I wanted.

    Also, I'm not selling it. :):bassist:

    You lucky B@#$%

    I would love to have a P/J Valenti, but mine would be in the '51 P bass style.

    Peace
