    Very nice bass. The body is Alder. What does it weigh?

    Do you know if those nordstrand pickups are wired in series or parallel?

    Do you know how I would even check that? I would, but it never dawned on me to even bother to determine that. It sounds find and there are no electronics issues, so it's a question I would have never asked.

    Something unique, maybe vintage.
    Hollowbody.
    Maybe a tube head and cabinet.

    Or a Ken Smith

    Any interest in trading the CB for a Warwick Masterbuilt Custom Shop German Thumb BO 4/EMGs w/flite case. It's the one on the far right of my TB avatar. You can do a preliminary search and see at the Warwick site.
