    I'm going to order a new P-bass from Nino V. in acouple months...
    I'm still deciding on the color...

    so, any ideas...whats the quintessential colors?
  2. You seen the 5 string PJ that he just made not too long ago, the sunburst one? That, IMO is the best looking Valenti ever.

    +1 on the root beer.

    I also like Inca Silver, Blueburst, Midnight Wine, and Natural Ash. Too many choices can be a very bad thing....

    Inca Silver is just perfect, IMO

    Don't listen to those heathens! P basses come in sunburst with tort pickguard or natural with black pickguard. Anything else is a sacrilege!

    This man knows of what he speaks. Keep a black pickguard on hand for those formal events. :smug:

    IMO, Black w/Black p/g and a maple/maple neck. Oh yeah.

    +1! Sleek and Classy, IMO.

    Also, I am a firm believer in a Natural Ash/black pickguard/maple neck combo:

    Either a 3-color sunburst with a tortoise shell or a black pickguard, or a 2-color sunburst with a white pickguard are my top choices.

    Black with a black or tortoise shell pickguard, or natural with a white pickguard get high honors with me as well.
