    Price drop to $950 + shipping

    I've got a excellent black NS Designs NXT4 Electric Upright Bass for sale. This bass plays exceptionally well. Smooth action, great for Pizz or Arco. This has been upgraded with the Hipshot tuners, it is also currently strung with Pirastro Obligato strings which sound great and play well on it.

    Also included is the NS Designs NXT stand, and padded case

    I am asking $950 + shipping

    (the amp/cord in the picture is not included in this sale)

    The original post with pics is over on the DB classifieds but I thought it would be equally of interest to the BG community as well. Pics are posted in the original thread here:

    Any video or sound clips? Looks like a killer setup.

    I bought it to practice on but ended up playing on my acoustic upright more often, so don't have a recording of this. If you're curious about what an NXT sounds like, there are many videos on Youtube that can give you an idea.

    This has basically lived in my house, well cared for, never gigged with. If you have any questions or concerns or would like more pics, feel free to PM me.

    Also I posted in the DB thread about willing to coordinate an in person delivery within a resreasona distance, it looks like you're in MN, depending on where you are, we could possibly coordinate a meet up so you could try it before purchasing.
