    How would yo describe the sound with the Nords/J Retro? Is it vintage or more hi-fi/modern?

    Not hi-fi to me at all. More like. Nice and warm. I play it side by side with my Marcus miller 5 with the Marcus east retro with nordsroms and it sounds just as good but of course differnt.

    Dropped price to 585.00 the upgrades of the pre amp andBridg alone are worth it not to mention the pickups! it will not go any lower. I will just keep it if it does not find a home.

    I just got one on a trade with an Audere preamp which is great. Plannig to change the bridge an tuning machines to a Hipshot, plus Duncan or Aguilar picups to make an amazing upgraded bass.
