Re-posted because of questionable content and advertising practices. I didnt want to bring bad press to someone by my own idependant actions. I want to state that I am not being compensated by Nino for spreading word on his basses. The only thing I get from this is personal satisfaction from helping out a budy. I want you guys to know about it so it doesnt stay my little secret. Id like to apologise to Nino, the Mods, and the rest of the Tbers who I might have hurt with my last thread. Nino doesnt deserve the bad press and Im not connected with him in any way other than being a customer. Mods, sorry for the extra hassle. Let me know if there is anything else I can do. TB, sorry if the post offended some of you. I hate SPAM too. Sorry to those who posted questions in the other thread. Ill try to answer them here again. Now lets admire some basses and get some GAS. Nino-Brown does it again! Check out the two newest Valenti basses! #004 5 string Deluxe Jazz bass -Swamp Ash Body -Zebrawood Laminated Top -Maple neck with Pau Ferro fretboard -EMG CS Jazz Pickups and Aguilar OBP-1 preamp He's still waiting on the knobs for this one but says they should be in soon. The price is pretty attractive too. Check with Nino-Brown on that. Nino does incrdible work. Im pretty curious to hear those Jazz pickups. The CS models are supposed to be warmer sounding than standard and from what I hear are really nice. Im getting the TW pickups in my next one which are CS pickups that can be switched from single coil to humbucker so its more than detached curiosity. Anyone have info on these? The next one if probably more for the "classic" guys. #005 Vintage Style P bass -1 Peice Swamp Ash Body -Transparent Blue Finish -Maple neck with Maple fretboard -BassLine 1/4 Pound P Pickup -Black Pearl Pickguard My Valenti 4 string jazz is my main bass and I have no doubt that my 5 string will be once that comes in. This guy is great to deal with and deserves the support. PM or e-mail Nino for more info. Peace Nick PS: Check out his other work.
