    Up for grabs is my Nordy VJ5 classic. This is a full 70's setup - basically as close as you can get to a 70's Jazz but with a B string.Here's the specs:

    34" scale
    Ash trans Rootbeer body
    1 piece Maple neck/fingerboard with skunk stripe & gloss finish
    Pearl blocks and white binding
    jumbo frets
    Nordstrand Nj5 (long) 70's wind single coil pickups
    Sadowsky pre-amp with VTC
    Hipshot quick release bridge
    Hipshot tuners
    a hair over 9 lbs
    This bass hauls ass! 70's funk/ Marcus Miller slap tone and when you favour a pickup....finger tones are just fat and punchy. Playability is second to none, Carey is a genius when it comes to building these basses. It’s hard to get one build now and days since he’s only doing special builds unless you know him personally. Carey’s build are some of the best out there.
    The bass is in great condition besides a couple of dings as pictured. The neck pocket finish crack has been stabilized and sealed by Mo of Mo's Repair Shop & Nordstrand per previous owner. This bass plays amazing with low action and sound killer. Will ship with roadrunner hardsoft case.

    Asking $2400 shipped
    Only trade is a Noble Pre DI, Fender American Vintage 63 Precision bass or Nitro finished Precision Bass +or- CASH.

    Really nice. Been eyeing this one. Any interest in trades for a really nice Sadowsky Ash/morado?

    Jake, 3 way trade if you can land this. I Need a 34" and I love my GFC but not playing it much. :)
