    I have ordered a very special bass from Carey Nordstand, who's instruments have incredible playability and attention to detail.
    Here's my progress thread for that bass.This bass will have this amazing camphor burl top, a Poplar ( Domestic Tulipwood) body, a Spalted Maple back, maple set neck with bubinga stringers ( i have been dying to have bubinga on a bass somewhere) , pau ferro fingerboard, matching Nordstrand dual coil pups, THG camphor knobs, a preamp which i will announce a little later with an added surpise that i will also add later... i cannot wait!

    I had to chime in here and get "subscribed" to the thread. Adrian, you DESERVE your own Nordstrand! I'm sure you'll love it as everyone else loves theirs.

    I KNOW THE PREAMP!!! It was pulled off a Carlo Robelli that Adrian found at a garage sale!! :smug:


    Should sound awesome!
