    Yo...
    I just picked up a bass made by Cliff Bordwell....I am totally blown away by the bass, but the real surprise is the Nordstrand Dual Coil pickups...I know Carey very well, but had never played a set of his 4 string duals wired in series, but MAN! Even passive the y sounded incredible! Lots of detail in the sound, very punchy in the mids.....I'm really digging 'em.
    Anyone else here playing/tried them? I know R basses uses them, as well as a ton of other guys out there....who here has them in their bass?
