    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...

    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......

    Finally! You crazy kids with all these ash/maple P basses. It's great to see some alder and rosewood in these parts!

    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.
