    oh, boy... THIS is gonna be fun!
    Carey is set to start on my new Nordstrand " Access Bass" fiver - this Amboyna top will have transparent "burgundy" stain, on an Ash body and Maple neck and Birdseye ( because that is my ULTIMATE wood combo!)
    Matching , and i mean MATCHING pups, Dual coils.
    F Bass pre
    Chrome Hipshot hardware
    Fiber optics
    I CANNOT WAIT to see what Carey does with this...
    i'll say it again, Carey Nordstrand's work is nothing short of absolutely amazing, and I have heard what this combo sounds like! ... look out! ;)

    Adrian, I really love that top...anything left over for me to make some pup covers?? :bag:

    Oh man I can't wait to see how that turns out.
  9. that's going to be amazing, Amboyna is my new favorite top wood. and that section down the middle is just sick.

    if you ever decide to sell that I will make you an offer you can't refuse :D

    Hmm - got any test pieces w/ the stain? I'd be a little scared of staining such an awesome piece of wood. :meh:
  12. Adrian, that looks like it's going to be the sickest bass ever. Can't wait to see it unfold.

    That slab of wood is so amazing, I'd call it intoxicating.

    I agree-I wouldn't put a drop of stain on it. It's too unique and beautiful.
  15. C'mon guys...let's give A a break here. Yeah, he sells a lot of really nice basses that some would need to be pryed from cold dead fingers - but remember it IS part of his business to do so.

    Sweeeeet.... :D

    Are these going to be the Villex pups or Carey's "ordinary" pups? I was just thinking the other day how awesome a set of Villex's would sound with an F bass pre. :hyper:
