    Are you refering to the laklands? Or Maxs Nordies?

    I must admit, I was turned sour by Nordstrand’s silly pickup descriptions on their website. But, now that I’ve bought a bass with Nordy p’ups and pre, I’ll forget about their website idiocy and buy their products, in the future. They know what they’re doing!

    LOL! I agree about the some of the descriptive adjectives on the website. I have talked directly to someone at Nordstrand with specific questions about sonic and physical aspects of certain pups. They are very helpful. The original Big Singles I bought were not the right size. They were too small for my 44-01. P2 is the correct size shell. I bought the pups from a different distributor. I called them to get info about the correct size shell, and they exchanged them NO CHARGE! Talk about customer service.

    it also helps that they are somewhat local to me, and I like to fraternize local businesses.

    I bought a 55-01 a few years back that already had LH3’s along with an Audere pre. I just recently had them swapped out for some Nordstrand Big Singles. To me, the LH3’s were very balanced and had a somewhat “polite” and clear tone (I’m not very good in describing tone). Absolutely dead quiet. I liked them but I wanted a little more variety in my little herd and was wanting a more aggressive sound. I had actually bought the Big Singles used on this forum before I located the 55-01 I wanted, but ended up leaving the LH3’s in for almost three years. I obviously didn’t dislike them at all.

    Duck and Joe are getting along famously.

    Steep price to avoid the wait for a build.

    New US Laklands ain't cheap... 55-60's start at $3864, that one has blocks and the LH3 preamp, and is getting shipped back from South Korea...

    Note to self:

    Never buy a Chicago based Lakland from a South Korean dealer... Buy it in Chicago!

    I can’t imagine why someone here would do that. Just order one. That is one sweet Jazz. I love natural finished instruments.

    The 10.25% sales tax will be more than shipping it from SK :(
