    So, on the advice from mand TBers, I decided to get a Nordstrand when I had the oppurtunity to get a full custom a a while back. I had a MTD that I loved, but ditched it cause I had a 5 string I was happy with. I think Chris A has that. Anyways, I recieved it yesterday in time to be cool to play a gig with it. Man, this thing rocks in all aspects. I join the 'Carey makes a real sweet ax' club. Thanks! Just got to get m 6 string game down now.

    Gotta run, but I'll post specs on it in a bit.

    Geez that's pretty! The gray and the really red padauk/rosewood-looking woods really go well together-fire and ice.
  3. Wow! That is a beautiful bass! Congrats! I love the wood combos!

    Very nice! And very different, too. I love the contrast between the body and the pickups/fingerboard.:cool:
  12. I really like the fingerboard wood. YUM! Nice bass

    If that Nordstrand 6 plays only half as good as it looks then it is one of the baddest basses in the world! That is beautiful, beautiful workmanship.
