    I got this wonderful bass recently. Carey's basses are so easy to play with the compound radius neck, and it sounds exactly like a 70's jazz should. However... I have a new double bass on the way and two other high-end basses that are meeting my needs, so this is up for grabs.

    Details:

    Up for sale is a Nordy VJ5 Classic #246 2-Tone Sunburst 70's Spec - 34" scale, 19mm spacing, Ash body / One piece maple neck with skunk stripe. The one piece neck is phenomenal! Comes with two pickguards... black & tort and a used F Bass gig bag.

    Weight is 9.50 lbs / 4.311 kg

    The pickups are NJ5 wide pickups, '70s wind in '70s position

    Note that there is a big crack in the finish in the back, it doesn't affect the functionality in any way, but it's there.

    Description from original seller (was3funk):

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-only-nordy-vj5-70s-classic-killer-jazz-896840/

    $2000 shipped to US or Canada.

    Trades: Mostly looking for a sale but would consider other high-end 5-string basses. Sadowsky, MTD, Ken Smith, Alleva-Coppolo, Fodera NYC, etc.

    Lots of interest but no wedding ring yet. This is a lot of bass for the money!

    Looks like the standards Nordy pre amp on this model. The fourth stacked bass/treb knob gives it away.
