  1. SOLd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Up for sale is a Nordy vJ5 Classic 60's style Jazz in overall great condition!

    Brand new, this bass would be $4,500 - 12 month wait.

    34" Scale
    Ash Body
    One Piece Maple Neck w/ Skunk Strip
    White Pearl Blocks & Binding
    9”-14” compound radius
    60's Style NJ4 Single Coils in 60's position.
    Active/Passive 2-Band Nordstrand Preamp w/ Tone Control
    19mm String Spacing
    Comes w/ Protec Gig Bag

    Condition is overall great - Very minor scratches here and there, pickguard has some minor scratches. The neck pocket has a tiny piece of finish chipped, but was covered over black. I personally could hardly tell it was there, only seeing it upon very close inspection - pics shown for full disclosure

    Excellent Jazz - I'm just not playing 5's enough to justify owning it.

    $2150 Fee Free Payment - VERY FIRM PRICE











    PM me if your interested!

    I think Nordy states is 1.81" if I'm not mistaken...
