    Hard bass to put up for sale, but I need the funds right now for other things. This is a really exceptional Nordy (they all are, but really, this one's got "it") I'm sure anyone who got a chance to play this at NAMM would agree. Here's the specs:
    • Alder body
    • Wenge fingerboard w/ abalone dot markers
    • NJ5s pickups
    • 34" scale
    • 19mm spacing
    • Candy apple red finish w/ black hardware
    • Vol/Blend/Bass/Treble/Passive Tone
    • 9.7 lbs.

    This bass has really powerful low end that is very thick and chewy. Slightly subdued top end and very growly mids. As far as I know, it's the only Nordy Carey has done with a wenge fretboard. Near mint condition. Easily 9.5 out of 10. Right now the bass is for sale through Carey's shop only and I'm sure he can give you more info on just how great this bass really is.

    SOLD !!

    Price posted. This is what Carey's shop is asking and this bass would be well over $4000 new with these options.
