    This NG3 is in as-new condition. I just purchased a Le Fay bass so I need to thin the herd. This is a very special NG#. It has been professionally upgraded to included features found in the more expensive Canadian-made Z3 model. Maurilio Mina (aka "Mo") of Nortstrand Audio professionally installed a toggle switch for each of the pickups so you can chose between parallel and series internally (same with the Canadian models), and a rear flush mount straplok was also installed, just like on the Z3 model, giving you the option of easier neck reach if you don't have long arms, along with flush mount straploks in the normal locations. Mo also replaced the original 4-way pickup selector switch with a 6-way, which gives you more choices - including bridge-neck selection, just like the Z3 models. (The original selector switch will be included.) Also, this bass comes with a Dingwall case, like the Canadian-made basses. I will also include two custom Mike Quick pickguards to sweeten the deal even more. The mods, pickguards, and case would cost over $500 if purchased separately, making this a $2,600 bass. No trade offers please.
    $55 shipped to CONUS.
    Here is information about Maurilio:

    I just got an NG3 and it's amazing. The only thing that could make it even more amazing is this mod. I'm not sure those who haven't owned an NG3 would understand. If you're thinking about getting an NG3, do the research and understand what flexibility and range this mod will give you.

    Good luck on the sale. I doubt it'll last long now that you put the ad back up.

    Thanks Brother. Yeah, you gotta know Dingwalls to appreciate what I've had done to this bass!

    Does this still have the darkglass preamp? If each pickup has its own series-parallel switch than what does the 6-way rotary switch do?

    Yes. Dark Glass Tone Capsule. Stock. The 6 way switch is a pickup selector. It has nothing to do with the internal switching of the dual coil pickups. Same as the stock pickup selector except two more selections. The most important of which is a bridge-neck combination, like a Fender Jazz. The factory selector does not offer that choice.

    What are the positions for the 6 way switch?

    I'm assuming neck solo, bridge solo, neck+bridge parallel, middle+bridge series, and two others?

    middle solo
    bridge-middle (series)
    bridge-middle (parallel)
    bridge-neck (parallel)
    neck solo
    bridge-middle-neck
