    I've got #11 here at my house for review :bassist:

    good chance I'll be having one built for me in the future!
  8. Valenti #10

    -Vintage white alder p bass body
    -Rosewood Jazz bass neck
    -Nordstrand NP4 pickups
    -BadAss 2 bridge
    -Hipshot D tuner
  9. Just out of curiosity - would Nino ever make a 6-string bass? I know Warmoth has the bodies / necks for them, but I've yet to see a 6-string Valenti. Maybe the order just hasn't come in yet? :cool:

    I got #15

    Ash Body
    Flame Maple Top
    Maple Neck
    Ebony Board with Mother of Pearl Dots
    Nordstrand Dual-Coil Pickups - Series Parallel Coil Tap for Each located in the knobs
    Aguilar OBP-3 w/ Active/Passive Bypass with mid selector switch located in mid knob
    All Knobs are going to be push pull except for blend.
    Hipshot Type A Bridge Satin Black
    Hipshot Ultralites Satin Black
    Black Accent Line
    Stringed with Sadowsky Stainless Steel Strings
    Schaller Strap Locks

  11. This is my favourite design Valenti, although the surf green valenti with the tort pickguard is a close second. Can I steal your design Poon? :)

    Man I want one badly. :) I've already emailed Nino, I'm guessing he'll reply soon.

    GAS! :crying:

    Ps. Does any of you guys have some soundclips of your basses? :bassist:

    Yeah I'm really thinking of buying, but I pretty much hate green, but that bass is sexy, feel free to take lots of pics to make me want it more ;)

    Whoa. That's so totally close to what I'm about to build out of warmoth parts. The only major differences that mine will have will be pearl blocks and white binding, fendery headstock, and maybe a j-retro. Thanks for showing me how awesome mine will look though!! That's got to be my favourite Valenti so far.

    Go for it man... As long as when you order it from Nino, you say you want the Poon Signature Model. :D Just playin. Seriously, I say go for it if you're getting a Valenti.

    He will if it's close to where he is. Nino wasn't at #15, but I requested it and it was 1 or 2 away from where he was in serials, so he gave it to me. Talk with him and he might work something out.
