I just got back from seeing my 2 (!) new singlecut basses being built by Nordstrand Guitars....YIKES!! My fretless has a box-elder burl top, alder body, 3 piece quartersawn maple neck, pink ivory lined fingerboard, Bartolini 9W4Js, Suhr 3 band 18 volt preamp with passive tone control....sweet! My singlecut fretted has a spalted horse chestnut top, alder body, same electronics, and a 24 fret ebony board with banjo (DINKY!!) frets! Both have glued in set-necks! There's pics of some of the stuff being built at nordstrandguitars.com. He leveled the frets on my R Bass while I was there. He has an incredible neck jig that gets the board DEAD flat!! My action's at 3/64s with NO BUZZ!!! I don't have a camera, but he does! See if you can scope out the newest photos on his site...they should be up by now. Eye candy!!
