    I emailed Nino about a few options and haven't heard back in a few days.

    What's the usual wait time on his basses?

    since they're just side projects of his (i think he still only works on them on the weekends and off time. i may be wrong), i don't think theres a really standard wait time. I'd say 3 months is a decent ball park, but the only way to get a good number is to ask him. be patient. he'll take care you of you.

    Quicker than other custom builders, less expensive, more options. Nice guy.

    For those who can't wait - there's a Valenti 4-string listed now on the bay... Oly white with Sadowsky PUs and pre-amp. Gee, where did he get those...?

    I've asked him too. one of the reasons was that the decal doesn't fit on the headstock.

    I'm sure there were more reasons, which I will let Nino tell :)
