    Need money as you can see in other threads... This is a bass I have owned twice and unfortunately will have to let it go again.
    It is Nordy vJ5 number 38, in white with a tort guard and a Brazilian Rosewood board. Fat stacks and an Audere pre.
    Yours for $2,250 shipped CONUS on a nice SKB case. PayPal preferred.
    Pictures to come shortly.

    I've also owned this bass twice. And if I had money I'd snatch it back in a heart beat! Bump for a great guy and my favorite bass.

    Thanks man!
    Would also consider a trade for an ash/maple 55-94 (possibility of a 3-way trade), a Lull 5-string P/J or a nice US Lakland Bob Glaub.

    This bass is tremendous. I know for a fact that Macribas only deals with extremely nice equipment. Don't hesitate to jump on this one.

    Looks quite nice. How would you describe the sound of the bass?
    How much does it weight?
    Is it a 34 or 35 inch scale?

    Thanks!
    Sounds like a modern jazz to me. Fat Stacks give it a different character. If you want the single coil sound, you can ground the coil tap wires, or even install a switch to do that.
    34.5" scale.
    I will get a weight later for you.

    This one is back on the block, with a bonus!
    I had the coil tap switch installed. Now you can have single coil and humbucking sounds out of the fat stacks, at your fingertips!
    Sorry, but I can't take trades.

    Great looking bass, but you probably want to start a new thread. Reading through all these old posts does nothing for your sale potential...

    My vJ5 (#40) is a near sibling to this killer bass and its the one bass I own that is going no-where... except with me to a gig! :)

    GLWTS, wish I had the chee$e to pick this one up from you.
