    Here's the status on existing stock from Nordstrand Audio's post on fakebook.

    While we’re still filling existing orders as fast as we can I wanted to let y’all know that we checked stock yesterday and we’re getting close to running out of Cat basses. We have a few white and maybe 15 or so red left. So if you’ve been on the fence about pulling the trigger here’s some more data to inform your decision. We likely won’t have more until September/October when the next order arrives.

    I wish I bought 2 in blue. I guess I’ll need to wait until September/October for my second one. Maybe they’ll have new colors!

    The blue looks the best to me but they were sold out. If I were to ever get a second Cat I would get the blue if available.

    it's worth the wait if you really want Lake Placid Blue.

    I have a blue one coming in this batch. I’d love to see an orange one in the fall.

    I've accessorized mine with a cool retro-patterned strap from Coco Guitar Straps on Etsy.
    I think it's the bomb.

    Am I able to use a slippery strap with the Acinonyx? Don't know. Must find out. For science.

    Yes, a slippery strap works for me. Able to play without fighting the bass at all. Not every bass will play along like that, as we know :) This strap is a Dunlop 2.5 inch that's been discontinued.

    Send an email to [email protected] and he will set it up. Depending on where you live the website can be glitchy about shipping.

    The Fall Shipment will be the same 5 colors. We can do custom colors, but that will be a significant upcharge and an additional delay in shipping.

    Not new. Pilgrims got this same message as they were boarding the Mayflower. Somehow, it worked out.

    Wow, that strap looks great on there! You can wear this strap when you perform wearing black, and your butterscotch strap when you are wearing a more colorful outfit!

    Relieved to read this, actually. The notion of a single production run, e.g. Limited Edition 2021 Pantone Ultimate Gray, would make me crazy(ier) and broke(er). But I'd own a lot of basses :hyper: :meh:

    Now that we know how great the Cat is…are we talking PRS type finishes/colors? English premier league color schemes? Asking for a friend.

    5 colors is more than typically you get with a line of import basses.

    Great to hear! So there's a blue one that would look good next to my Surf Green!

    If I love it as much as I’m expecting to, I might just do this. Custom color and custom pickguard. I’ll be in touch as soon as I’ve logged some time on mine.
