    Always one of my faves! Thinking of sending my blue one back to Nino for an OBP-1 install with a VTC. May get the headstock painted as well.

    Chef, one of Nino’s biggest fans and advocates for his work, has moved on from this life. Thanks Alan for all you did on TB and with spreading the word on Nino’s work.

    RIP Chef.......

    Yeah, I’m pretty sad. Chef was actually the cat that convinced me that Valenti basses were worth checking out.

    Breaks my heart to read this... But I'm happy that in some small way I got to know him if only through social media and a handful of PMs. I LOVED his mother's artwork and after she passed, would always order a calendar which featured it from him.


    Rest easy, brother...

    +1 on all the comments about Chef.

    Man, I'm still as stunned as I was when I read the news last weekend. This one's gonna stick with me a while.

    And just like Ivan wrote, ain't no doubt I play a Valenti because of Chef.

    I finally got to take these two out on their first real gig. ~ It was literally a call on the way home from work on Friday to do a sub gig Saturday. They sounded great & fit right in the mix.
    Voodoo Chile ~ Valenti #320 & Mesa TT800

    Jumpin Jack Flash ~ Valenti #264 & Mesa TT800
