    If you own 5 or more basses, stand up and be counted! (Literally, I will be assigning member#s)

    Share your pics, any pertanent details about your bass, and your thoughts on it (pros/cons)

    The rules: As long as it's either a bass guitar, or an upright bass, then it can be anything.

    Until I get my OLP, I'm not starting up any more clubs. No need. I got em all out of the way today. Oh yeah, found out TB has trolls today too, unfortunately. Not surprised, just disappointed. :(

    Nice collections, all! You make me feel so much less gluttonous for having all the ones I do! :p ;)

    Generally the people who create loads of clubs, just for the sake of creating clubs are the ones considered trolls.

    Well, this Nordy is the most comfortable bass in my collection. The playability is unbelievable. It's 34,5", very light Ash body and Maple/Maple neck with white binding and pearloid blocks. The pickups are Big Singles and the pre is 3-band Audere. I changed the strings to DR Marcus Miller set and this bass is truely amazing.
    Usually it's a bit uncomfortable to slap on 5-string but this one feels like it was 4-string.
    I strongly suggest everybody to try out the Nordy! Great experience. :hyper:

    #11 Robert. Nice Collection!

    Margus: yeah, I've heard really good stuff about Nordy, and Audere. It sounds like a bass to really be proud of.
