    I haven't had the chance to try it out yety but one is on it's way to me.

    I see a new addition to my family to keep the Geddy Vee some company. Maybe a Geddy Pee. :D

    This is something that I've fielded a lot of e-mails and inquiries about over the last several months, so I'm glad that Carey was finally able to get this one done. :bassist:

    As one of those who's been pesky on this since early summer, I'm excited to see it's here!

    It looks like a game of dominoes :)

    What's the story on the pole placement?

    If that sounds anywhere near as good as the NP4 does, it's gonna be an awesome pickup! :hyper:

    Very cool... just as I've been thinking about dropping a 5-string P into my 5-string Jazz. Looking forward to hearing more about these.

    Thanks, Nino! I hadn't heard a whisper of this new offering from Carey. I too am looking forward to hearing what your ears think of this one...

    Isn't that what Reggie hamilton does? I believe his signature bass is a 5 string jazz, with a Pbass pickup.

    Thats a good thing though IMHO. I love the sound of P pickups. :bassist:
