Comes with original Nordstrand 2 band but the new version was recently installed by Mo Mina, so I will include the original hand made pre as well. Plays amazing with string to string evenness in tone. The B string sits seamlessly in the tone palette. Action is low and was recently set up by Mo.

    I had this one briefly and unfortunately had to sell it, it was REALLY GOOD. Someone is about to score.

    This is in fact that same bass and it is amazing at that. I have to many 5’s at the moment and this one is too damn beautiful so I bought a white one that I am not afraid to play. I took it to Mo after I picked it up from you and gave it a spa day. Had the older pre switched for the newer version. She is amazing. Thanks J.Wolf

    The story of this bass is that I played it at NAMM 07 and it sold while I was hemming and hawing. I vowed that if it ever popped up again after going to Chile I would snag it. One day it landed at The Low End and I jumped on it. It was as great as i remembered it.

    And I remember you beating me to it when it was at LE and we chatted on FB after you got it again. :)
