    Some of you may have seen this one a little while ago. It is a brand new Valenti. Only a month old! I am prefering a more traditional tone and this one is quite modern. Think of everything you would want out of a Lakland 55-94 and more!

    The 5A quite top is absolutely stunning! ...And can you say birdseye, birdseye, birdseye? Pictures do not do it justice. The blues are hard to get on camera but the first one is pretty accurate, I could never get the last one to come out like I wanted...You will not be dissappointed in person.

    Specs are as follows:

    Swamp Ash Body w/5A Quilted Maple top
    Blue Burst Finish
    Graphite reinforced Birdseye Maple Neck
    Birdseye Maple fretboard
    1 7/8” @ Nut
    Aguilar OBP-1 preamp w/VTC
    Nordstrand NJ5S pickup @ neck
    Nordstrand MM5.4 pickup @ neck
    34" Scale
    12" fretboard radius
    Black Hardware
    HipShot A Style bridge (19mm spacing)
    HipShot UltraLite Tuning Gears
    Straplocks
    Contoured heel for easier access to the upper frets
    TKL Ultralight case

    It plays like butter and sounds like thunder! As you would guess, not a scratch on it. This would cost $2300 if you ordered it from Nino and you wold have to wait a few months to get it.

    $1650 Shipped to Cont US.

    I am not really interested in trades but will consider it. Probably the only thing I would consider would be 5 string 34" scale basses with wide spacing. I am pretty set in the amp and cabinet realm.

  13. This bass looks amazing and if it's anything like mine I'm sure it plays amazing too. These basses are great and give Sadowsky and Lull some competition. This needs to go back to the top of page #1.

    That may be the best birdseye I've ever seen.
