    Here is the famous #5 Nordy VPJ5. The Queen of BIG Booty! Absolutely incredible instrument. Big FAT bottom with grunt and clarity. Beautiful dark Rosewood board, Alder body, Nordstrand NP5/ NJ5S. Nordstrand 2 band V,V, tone, b/t. The playability is stellar. stoopid low action, every note thick and solid. 34" Scale. 19mm. Perfect balance, with a neck to die for. weighs in at 9.4lbs on my br digital scale. Comes with PUP cover.

    This bass is in perfect condition in every way. not a scratch or any signs of wear....except.....
    When it was shipped to me, It was shipped in a ProTec Case. I got it..looked it over...PERFECT! I even played it for a couple of days in my room when I noticed something while it was sitting on the stand. whats this?? paint missing on the bottom by the jack???!! Sure enough....in the case were small paint chips and on further inspection...found the culprit. a finishing nail from the frame( rigid bag) was sticking thru the padding! I sent the seller pics and was offered either $100 or send it back. I countered with no $$ back and a new mono bag (the best IMHO). I felt like if it ever bothered me Id get some touchup paint, but due to its location..I didnt even see it for a few days. So...now it has this small paint flaw. I will include a pic at the end of the nail sticking thru. So Im listing this now for less than I paid plus a brand new $160 mono bag. $2295 shipped CONUS. sorry, no trades...

    Do you know if it’s poly or nitro?

    Does it go passive?
