    F/S Nordy VJ5C Classic model ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE IN EVERY WAY...What can you say Carey Nordstrand is building some of the finest J bass 5's on the market today and this bass is a stellar example of his incredible work and attention to detail.Look at the straight grain ash he chose for the body Ive never had such an incredible piece of ash...:) Gorgeous 3 tone burst finish with a satin finish 9-14 degree radius neck that plays itself.The feel and tone of this bass is un matched and the B is tight and focused.One of the best 5 string J basses on the market today hands down and Pretty much mint condition with just some slight swirling on the pick guard.Carey's prices just went way up this bass is close to $5k new. Incredible tone and clarity with top notch build quality.

    Interesting. I didnt know that existed (degrees)
    I have a radius tool measuring set that have a 9" or 14" (there is more) but those numbers represent inches. Here is a pic of one of my Wals with a 12" radius fretboard.

    No it's not one or the other Nordy graduates the radius starting at 9" and flattening out to 14" at the heel also called compound radius.

    I usually don't care for many 3tsb or blocks, but that is the most beautiful one I've seen
