    Just got this on a trade deal before I picked up a new Smith so I need to let it go. Here are the details: IMG_7214.jpg

    Nordy VJ5 PJ. This bass has a reverse Nordstrand P pup in the neck position and a big single in the bridge with a Nordstrand 3band preamp with passive tone control. It is a monster of a bass that is in fantastic shape. As you know Carey Nordstrand does not make basses for a living anymore so there are not a lot of these and there won't be any more of them. The PJ's are even more difficult to find.

    The build quality rivals that of the top boutique Jazz builders such as Sadowsky, Alleva Coppolo, FBass etc.

    There are 3 minor dings on the bass that can be seen in the photos. Other than that the bass is in incredible shape.

    Body - Alder
    Neck - Maple
    Fretboard - Brazilian Rosewood
    Pups - Nordstrand P Pickup, Nordstrand Big Single
    Preamp - Nordstrand 3band with passive tone and mid switch
    Weight - 9lbs 13oz
    19mm spacing
    34.5" scale (it's a modern)
    21 frets
