Unfortunately I have to finally let go of my Nordstrand 6. I've owned this bass for 12 years and have loved it- it's been solid as a rock and now that I think of it, it's never needed an adjustment in all this time. It was once highlighted on Carey's website, but I see now that the archive page hasn't survived his latest website renovation. I do, however, have Carey's description of the bass that he posted on the archive post: New 2/17/03 This is Andrew's Bass, an SC6. He has waited a long time for it and it's finally ready. It features a Australian redgum top on a chambered alder body, and an ebony fingerboard tops a 3 piece maple neck. It has an unusual electronics package consisting of a volume, blend, tone, mid, and bass control. This bass also features my own custom wound dual coil pickups inside ebony covers. I should also point out that it has an "A Hipshot" on the B string, which actually comes in handy. When I was in a sharp key I left it on B. For flat keys I'd drop it to Bb. I used to play with the Birdland big band, and they had a few Brazilian charts in Eb... ;-) As you can see from the photos, it also has an ebony ramp. It's held on with double sided tape, so it's easy to pop off. For the electronics, the pickups are powered by an Aguilar preamp. I've used this bass a lot over the years, most notably with the Birdland big band here in NYC, and on my last record "Detroit Lean." Detroit Lean: On "Take Both Paths," I'm playing the melody and solo on this bass. (The low bass is a L.H.McCurdy) iTunes music link: Take Both Paths by Phil Palombi YouTube link: Since this is a bass forum, I should also note that I used Scott LaFaro's Prescott bass on that recording ;-) Here's are a few older videos with the bass. Be sure to bump the quality up to the highest setting to get the best sound. George Harrison's Something. (Bass solo at 3:05) I Don't Care (It's a Love Song). (Bass solo at 2.48) And finally, here's a little hotel room instructional video I shot years ago when I was on the road. There's no amp- just me playing in front of an iPhone. You can hear how much sound the bass puts out acoustically! You can also see my fingerings for "Got a Match." That's about it. PM me for any questions. I would like to get $2800 plus shipping for the bass, but reasonable offers are accepted. I feel that you would have to spend well over $5K these days to find a 6 string that has this much attention, detail, and love in it's making. Blemishes There are a few small nicks that I've documented in the photos. Other than those, it's an amazingly beautiful instrument for its 16 years of use. Payments and Shipping I accept PayPal, of course, as well as Venmo or QuickPay with Zelle. Cash with a local pickup would be amazing, of course. On that note, I would meet someone half way if you live within 60 miles or so of NYC. I'll ship to anywhere in the CONUS if you're willing to accept the charges and chances. I'll include that old hardshell case and box it up thoroughly on top of that, so I'm sure it will arrive safely, but insurance should be included as part of the shipping just to be safe. I'm sorry, but I don't feel comfortable shipping outside of the USA. You'll have to come to NYC and hang out with me in person if you'd like to buy it. I think that's about everything. PM me if you have any questions!
