    $1250 (plus shipping unless you are local). International is okay with me if buyer pays shipping & fees.

    All of this information is straight from Nino's site.

    Aged Cherry Burst Finish
    Maple neck w/Birdseye Maple fretboard
    1 1/2" @ nut
    34" Scale
    12" Radius
    Graphite Reinforced neck
    Nordstrand NJ4 Pickups
    Aguilar OBP-3 preamp
    White Pearl Pickguard
    Chrome Hardware
    Hipshot B Style Bridge
    20mm String Spacing
    Hipshot HB-1
    Schaller StrapLocks

    Again, I'm just swiping Nino's content for now. The only damage of note is a ding towards the input jack...I'll take a picture of that (and updated pictures of the rest of the bass) sometime soon for seriously interested parties.

    This is a fantastic, no excuses bass. Even after hearing all the praise for Nino's work, I still found myself impressed by the workmanship. I'm only selling it for two reasons: I prefer five stringers and I'm ordering two custom basses. Due to the second reason, I'm not as interested in trades as I usually am.

    Thanks,
    Marshall

    This is the sexiest Valenti I've ever seen! Good luck with the sale. I wish I had the cash to pick this beauty up.

    Sorry for the delay! Here are some more photos (with glare)...the bass looks great, but does have the ding (to the wood) near the input jack. I should have stuck a dime nearby for reference, but hopefully you can see that it's quite tiny. I also didn't get a great picture of the birdseye maple fretboard.

    While taking pictures, I noticed that the bass could use a setup...it's not bad by any stretch, but could use a truss rod tweak. If desired, I might be able to adjust it before mailing.

    Other than this, the bass is in beautiful condition and sounds fantastic.

    Bump. I'm currently selling two basses, but only have one case that is good for shipping. If the Nordy sells first, this bass will be off the market for a while.

    That might happen; I'm actually going to close this thread temporarily. I thought I had a buyer, but he hasn't responded in a little while. The case that I would use to ship it is going with my Nordy (partially sold). I'm going to wait until I get my other equipment out of storage and have a suitable hard case. In the meantime, I'll enjoy the Valenti. :)
