    Up for sale is a Nordy VJ5C Classic 70's style J - this is Carey's tribute to vintage Fenders...Top of the line with every option !!!

    New - this would go for OVER $5,000 with a 12 month wait!

    Ash body
    AAAAA Quilted maple top Big $$ upgrade...!

    Protec Gig Bag
    Weighing in at a very comfy 9.5lbs - extremely balanced feeling.
    This bass is absolutely amazing and basically plays itself..She can cop all the vintage fender tones and can also lay in the mix like a Sadowsky,Careys' pre is extremely versatile...
    Basically in very very clean to almost mint condition with one finish blemish ½ inch size of a dime on the back of the body, and only noticeable when you flip her over...
    The burst on this axe is truly amazing and the top is ridiculous and the quilt looks ridiculous in person. Considering the blemish on the back though - I'm pricing to move.

    $2700 NET Takes her !! Not negotiable - very firm - lowest I'll go - priced to move and to avoid nonsense.
    (I also have the original Hipshot Vintage Style Bridge that I'll included for an extra $50 if you wish.)
    No Trades - For Sale Only








    Amazing bass!!

    And here is a photo of the small finish blemish. This is an odd one becuase it's a chip, but there is no bare wood exposed... there is still finish over the Ash:

    PM Me if your interested!

    Looks like Jonno's old bass...
  4. Photo attached - blemish is very small, and is not deep enough where any bare wood is exposed.
