    Pros
    • + Gene Imbody is great to work with
    Cons
    • - As with any custom builder, you have to wait awhile.
    This bass is well balanced and has great tone. The Cutis Novak pickup gives you a big full P-Bass on Steroids sound while the Nordy big single neck is well defined and works well when both are active. Love the checkerboard binding and retro knobs. Even the pick guard is clear with a painted back to give it that old school look. The binding is aged with a coat of tinted lacquer which I requested. This base came with a Mono Gig bag.
    Price Paid:
    4600.00
