Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!
This bass was demo'd ....

But a few years ago, it all started like this:
Here are my current three Nordy's once again:
For a while there, I was thinking that Bruce was gonna buy that ice blue vJ5 off of me, but I'm glad that he didn't because after a lot of playing and debate, I've decided that it's my favorite 5-string alder/rw bass. Unfortunately, though, I do need to move some gear, so it looks like maybe the vJ5 Classic is going to go up on the block...
Tom, do you still have that NX5 set neck? can I have it? Please?
Man, I wish I was in a position to snag this bass. I've played it, and it's amazing. Given Carey's recent business change, this bass should move VERY fast. Anyone here considering it better jump on it. Just saying.

I'm in. Love my VP5 with TI flats. It just sits in the mix so perfectly and works for so many styles. Of course I also need one with rounds.....and a jazz......and an NX5.......and a......

Am I wierd?, I like them all.
I just got in from a gig. I've been playing my VJ5 Alder/Rosewood a lot lately with this band. But tonight I tuned up the VP5 and it sounded just right. Man, this VP5 just freaking KILLS! It is soooo organic and the frequencies are amazing in the mix. A major tone monster! Just had to share.
We now return you to the new thread with massive sharing of Nordy Pics!
Once again, thank you Carey! The instruments you build inspire great music.
I think you hit the nail on the head when you said the VP is so organic.......its the best bass out there for me...and the neck is so perfect!!!
My new to me Nordy
