Jazz Bass with soapbars?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by OriginalCrash, Jun 12, 2007.

  1. I'm sure someone out there has one. I'm wondering if anyone has any pics or knows where I could find some. I've narrowed my pickups choices down to Norstrand SE's, BSS's, or FS's (or even possibly the DC's). Obviously the BSS's or FS's would require some routing. I can imagine what it would look like (and it should look fine), but I was just wondering if I could see a few pics. Thanks.

  4. Thanks, that's what I was looking for. BEAUTIFUL bass, by the way. And I've never even been a big fan of dark finishes, but that looks great with the flame figure!

    You can always replace the pups with Nordies. Someone here has one!

    Man, you must have good eyes! Squinting didn't do squat for me. The other thing about that bass is the non-standard Lakland bridge. Didn't know that had black burst either.

    Yes, they sound GREAT!

    GREAT builder (Carey) + GREAT pickups (Fatstacks) +
    GREAT electronics (Audere) = Sounds GREAT!:smug:

    There is a clip somewhere on TB of Adrian Garcia's
    Nordy (I think it has Big Splits though). That will give
    you an idea of what they sound like (plus some
    GREAT playing by Adrian).;)
