    First....the obligatory disclaimer. I am no longer a dealer....Bass Atlanta is long-gone, but I kept the TB name. Not to be confused with Atlanta Bass Gallery, which is still going strong!)


    Thinning the herd. Since my gig for the last 6 years prefers the P-Bass sound, and I’ve grown rather fond of it myself, I am selling most everything else.

    This is my pride and joy. A Nordstrand NJ Deluxe 4-string, "crushed velvet" maple top, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, Nordstrand NJ4SE pickups, and Aguilar OPB-3 preamp. This bass is handcrafted by famed luthier, Carey Nordstrand, and is a superb example of his craftsmanship.

    I bought this brand new from Blueberry Hill Bass. You can see it on their website at the bottom of this page: http://www.blueberryhillbass.com/sb_nordstrand.htm

    This bass was played outside my home a total of 3-4 times at church. Unfortunately, the 3rd time, I put a very small ding in the [DEL]headstock [/DEL] body from the edge of the cymbal.

    These are the original Nordstrand photos. The only thing that has changed is that small ding. [DEL]I will photograph it later and post it and/or send it to any serious buyers.[/DEL] Posted!

    Anyway, Carey is apparently no longer making these custom-style basses…..just the Nordys. So here’s your chance to get a rare custom Nordstrand at a great price. It includes all the original tags/labels, etc., and an awesome Mooradian gig bag. (Will photograph later). This bass is like new, except for the small ding mentioned above.

    I bought this bass for $2495 several years ago. Will sell for [DEL]$1999[/DEL] $1799 shipped to CONUS.

    Please PM with any questions. No trades, please.
