  1. I'm selling my "Black Beauty" VALENTI #025. I picked this up from a fellow Tber. It's an incredible bass, with a wide array of tonal characteristics. It also has 'Nordstrand Fat Stacks' pickups! I admire Nino's basses so much, that I'm only selling it to fund another Valenti 5 string which will be custom made to my specs. The bass is tuned E-A-D-G-C.

    I'd also consider trading it for an Aguilar DB750, or a really nice 300-400 watt all-tube amp to compliment a Bergantino nv215.

    Here's the original thread and Mark Knell's(West Coast Bass) review on this bass...

    And here's a few more pics and more info from Nino Valenti's site...(scroll down to Mark Knell #025)

    I love the Borat reference Tslice. I wish this was strung B though G it would be gone. It's a gorgeous bass!

    You can string it up BEADG very easily.

    At the most it MIGHT need a tweak of the neck to get it set up for doing B-G, but it can be done, with strings, for less than 50 bucks.
