For sale is a beautiful custom jazz bass by acclaimed luthier, Cliff Bordwell. The bass is a medium scale (32" ) 5-string with a low B, 24 frets. The B is tight, focused, and clear. The bass is equipped with Nordstrand NJ5 70's wound single-coil pickups and a 9-volt Nordstrand 3-band preamp fitted in a metal Fender plate. There are 4 controls: Vol+tone stack/blend/treble/bass+mid stack. There's also an active/passive switch. As far as wood goes, the body is made of light weight ash with a canarywood top. The neck is maple with a wenge core and a rosewood fingerboard. All tuners are light-weight and the whole bass comes out to about 8.8 lbs. The sound is focused, clear, and punchy in the lower register with a big and round, but well-shaped low end. The middle to upper register becomes nice and bell-like thanks to the single-coil pickups and warm tonal properties of the woods. Sound samples available via link below. They're in order from Bridge Pickup -> Neck Pickup -> Both Pickups. Mono case included with purchase.
