    There is an ad for a Valenti 5 on the Dallas Craigslist in the musical instrument section!?

    Looks pretty nice too.

    Anyone know who's it is?

    Hey Nino, I've never been a fan of Fender P's or J's but after looking at your basses, I'm really tempted to try one out. The amount of attention you pay to detail is astounding. You do great work.

    David:

    Yeah its not the red one, I still have it. I can't bring myself to part with it. I got to gig it alot and in some large venues before moving and the sound is great.

    I made it to Texas without major incident. Still learning my way around.

    Pre-serial number. Not Nino's electronic work.

    But still a nice bass.

    Indeed. If that has the same heart warming effect my Valenti does when i take it out of the case, its well worth the price...even if the electronics cavity isn't as incredibly neat and tidy as if the Vee had done it :cool:

    Gotta say though, Valenti's are gonna have to come with a surgeon general's warning soon. "Basses made by Nino Valenti are highly addictive substances and should be treated as such. Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should not play Valenti's..." :p :D
