    I was hoping to find out some opinions of Nordstrand basses from any of you who have played or have one. I was looking at His website and his basses look incredible.
    Thanks

    There's a giant Nordstrand thread here in the Basses forum-here is a link to it:

    If you do a search, there are other threads about Nordstrand as well. I've played a singlecut six of his before-very well made, unique bass.

    I own a Nordstrand SC5. It is in my top two as far as favorite basses of all time and best basses I have played. The other is my Zon Sonus Custom fretless 5.

    If I were forced to pick a favorite, most days I would pick the Zon. But I would rather donate my organs than get rid of either of them.

    Here are some obligatory pics* of mine.
