    For trade: Mint Nordstrand Nordy VJ5 Classic. It is routed for both J/J and P/J; currently setup with the Nordy single coils. Nordstrand two band preamp. It's unique in that is has the only painted satin black neck that Nordstrand has ever done. Matching black headstock. It also has:

    ■34" scale neck with 9" to 14" radius which is very comfortable and plays very fast.

    ■Alder body with recent ’59 “narrow band” two tone burst finish by Pat Wilkins.

    ■Satin Black Maple neck with Macassar Ebony fingerboard with White pearloid blocks.

    ■Two complete sets of pickups; Nordstrand NPJ5s set with the J in 70's position and a set of Nordstrand J/J single coils.

    ■Volume(pull passive), blend, passive tone, mid (pull to switch freq), and bass controls. Mid and bass are boost/cut.

    ■Hipshot B style bridge in black with 18mm spacing. All hardware is black, including the straplocks.

    ■8.68 lbs

    It also comes with two Black/White/Black pickguards – one for J/J and one for P/J. It looks, sounds, and plays fantastic.

    As far as bass trades, I'm primarily interested in fretted five strings like Skjold, MTD, Sadowsky, Fodera NYC, F Bass, Roscoe (no LG's) etc. Sorry, but no fretless trades. I have ~ $3k into this one. Will also consider partial trades for Bergantino AE212 cab. CONUS only.




  2. that my friend is a thing of beauty :eek:
  3. Are you looking for something in particular for a trade?

    Very nice! I would swap my Sadowsky for a week but I don't think I could let it go forever. This bass however is welcome over any day.
