    Nordy VJ5 ($1950), Olympic White, tort pickguard, Rosewood Fretboard, Bound with Blocks, maple neck, alder body. Nordstrand Fat Stack Pickups, has toggle switch for hum cancelling or single coil mode. Nordstrand 3b preamp. Controls are Stacked Volume, Tone, Mid, Stacked Bass Treble. The mid is push pull also for upper and lower frequencies. Right around 10 pounds weight. 34.5" scale (neat feature of these basses), 19mm string spacing at the bridge. Strap Locks.

    Has some flaws in paint work, which pictures show. I contemplated doing a restoration on this but it plays and sounds so perfect I didn't want to mess with it. This is an awesome bass for slap or finger style playing. Tons of option with all the controls and preamp.

    Here's what Nordstrand says about this style bass:

    The Modern vJ5 scale is 34.5" with 21 frets, radius is 12" to 20" compound, small vintage style fretwire, 1.81" bone nut, 19mm bridge spacing and a fast satin finish neck with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

    If you are looking for a souped up J bass on steroids, this is it. The slightly longer scale, combined with our signature pickups and proprietary preamp give a sound that is bigger, bolder, and harder to hide in a mix. It's a J bass with attitude.

    Shipping included in pricing to CONUS.

    Do you know if this bass has an alder or ash body?

    Price drop, if it doesn't sell this week I will be sending it off to be refinished. Get it at this low price while you can.
