    Another fantastic Nordy VP5. The only reason I'm selling this is because I have 2 and I just cant justify keeping them both. The neck is silky smooth and she is as close to mint as you can get without being new. A new one of these goes for $3700 + case and shipping.

    One piece maple neck

    3 Tone Burst with small red and black bits

  2. Man, that is a beauty!

    What is the deal with the 'blacked out' pickup pole pieces? That is unusual. Just curious.

    Thanks Ken.

    It's black tape under the pickup covers to keep the strings from hitting the pole pieces. This bass has very low, I mean really low action. It looks cool too.

    Yes. This is a very nice example of a Nordy VP5. Sounded very nice on a number of sessions. Plays like a dream.
