    For sale or trade.

    Looking for a USA Lakland, Sadowsky Bass, or a nice Valenti.

    Bought this bass less than a week ago from another TB'er, but this is just way too much bass for me! I'm a simple man and prefer a more vintage feel to my basses.

    Bass is beautiful. Had it set up a few days ago. Action is perfect and neck is straight as can be. Pictures are from original thread as well.

    Here are the dtails from the original thread:

    Up for sale is my beautiful Nordy VJ4. This bass is extremely versatile, capable of a great variety of usable tones thanks to the 3-band preamp and the Nordstrand Big Single pickups. You can dial in a wide spectrum of sounds, from a gnarly open jazz bass tone to a round deep neck pickup tone. This bass also accepts a great low action setup, and the neck is super fast. Condition is excellent- I was able to find one small ding on the bottom, and a very light mark on the back, neither of which could be photographed.

    Specs as follows:

    Alder Body
    Rosewood Board
    Pearloid Blocks w/ Binding
    Nordstrand 3-Band Preamp- Volume (Pull-Passive) / Volume / Tone Control / Mid (Up 1k, Down 400) / Bass
    Pearloid Pickguard

    Looking for a USA Lakland or Sadowsky Bass.

    Cash price is $2100 firm. It's what I paid. Shipped to lower 48.

    Weight on my trusty bathroom scale is 9.5lbs.

    Not sure about the year, to be honest I am not sure how to date a Nordy, I will check with the previous owner. The serial number is 191.

    The neck is possibly the fastest neck I have ever played. C shape and very smooth. Feels almost as thin as the neck on a vintage 75 Fender Jazz bass to me.

    Hope that helps!

    Also her is the control lay out.

    Neck Volume (pull passive) / Bridge Volume / Vintage Tone Control / Treble / Midrange (Pull 1k / down 400) / Bass
    There is a center detent on the treble / mid / bass as well, so you can boost or cut.

    Just got an email back from Nordstand...Production on the bass was completed and shipped on 08/13/2009. If you were to order this exact bass today it would cost 4500.00 and there would be a 10 month wait. Just thought this was some cool info to add on.
