    theyre an older set so they dont have the logo on the underside of the pickup. i measured the dcr and the guys at nord confirmed they are a series set.

    heres a pic

    edit- i originally assumed the lack of copper tape and sealing in the covers was a mod, but i found another pic of some older nord duals for sale on ebay and they look exactly the same so i guess this is what they were doing when they first started making them. heres the pic. [​IMG]

    Not sure I can do it now, but these look awesome. How close to a P tone can you get with them?

    its a very different design, but it can get fat like a p

    Good to know... I realize it's totally different than a P, but seems like it would have some nice beef.

    the first picture is clearly for a 4-string. however, all of the pictures of the back of the pups are 5-string. can you please clarify?

    the top 2 pictures are the 4 string set for sale (including the back pic which is on my kitchen table). the bottom picture of the back of a 5 string set has the following written above it

    "edit- i originally assumed the lack of copper tape and sealing in the covers was a mod, but i found another pic of some older nord duals for sale on ebay and they look exactly the same so i guess this is what they were doing when they first started making them. heres the pic."

    the pic of the 5 string set is to show that the set im selling hasnt been modified and that this is how they used to make them. if you compare these pics to what nordstrand currently sells, there is copper shielding on the poles, whether theyre series or parallel etched into the flatwork and no sealing into the covers.
