    Trades: boutique level basses of equal or greater value. Will be picky because wanting to sake to buy another bass.

    Edit: I’ve taken this bass down because I’m on the fence as it’s really a phenomenal sounding and looking bass but I need the money to buy another Namm Showpiece Devon that’s being finished. Bass is like brand new and perfect in every way.

    This bass is in the top 2-3 basses I've ever had in my hands. The build, playability and tone are up there with any bass I've heard. The tones you can get with the Nordstrand DC pickups and Nordie 3 band preamp with Vintage tone control is versatile and with the added coil taps featuring 2 different single coil selection for each pickup and series mode makes it very diverse. It features a 9.5 pound alder with gorgeous Cocobolo top and ebony fretboard with abolone inlays. The bass is a masterpiece made by one of the best luthiers in the business. The B string is the best I've played. This bass is like new and over $4200 new.
