    I would like to officially assign Nordy Club numbers on behalf of Nordstrand Nordy owners!

    Who wants a number? Just say; Sign me up and post a photo of your Nordy if at all possible!

    As a token of a respect, love, admiration and respect, I am taking it upon myself to assign Nordy Club Number One (#1) to our very own TB'er; Adrian Garcia. Adrian is a world class bassist, a treasured and respected brother and he is a huge advocate of Nordstrand Nordy's. Visit Adrian's "New Nordy" Thread here:
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=406717

    Here is Adrian's new Nordy:

    CHARITYPEGHEAD.
    CHARITYFULLDOWNSIZE.
    CHARITYANGLESMLL.
    CHARITYBOARDREG.

    Nordy's in my experience are among the finest, most versatile Jazz style basses (with modern appointments and enhancements) on the market today! Carey Nordstrand, Stew, Maurilio and the rest of the Nordstrand staff are gentlemen and exceptional human beings. It is a privilege to play their basses and to participate in this forum as an advocate for what has become my favorite instrument!

    So let the games begin! I'll post periodic updates with Nordy Club Owner numbers frequently.

    Nordy Club owner Numbers:

    1 - Adrian Garcia
    2 - Roscoe5 (Gary Roberts) TB name to be changed (hehe)

    Who's next?

    To kick off the Nordy Club Photo's, here I am on New Year's Eve 2007 with my Nordy Vj5 and some other Nordy Photo's I took.

    Nordy1.
    GNordy2.
    GRobertsBirdseye.
    GNordyBack.
    GRobertsNordyFull.

    Post your pics and request a Nordy Club Number and I'll update as soon as possible.

    PS: If you know your Nordy Serial Number and want that to be your number, you need to speak before the number is taken! BEADG! So far so good. Done. You are Number 30!

    I just have to say, Kevin, Gary, Adrian, and Jai Swann have my absolute favorite looking nordys. I LOVE the way all those basses look! Though when it comes to goatees, Gary has my favorite by far :p lol

    If i don't sell mine by April 1st, i'll be requesting a number.

    Yeah, it's hard, especially since I've played a few of these before, and even specifically, Adrian's earlier white one. However, every night at midnight, I stand out in my front yard and scream at the top of my lungs. Gets the dogs going in the neighborhood, but satisfies somehow... ;)

    lol...:D

    I've personally not had the pleasure of playing one first, but everyone's descriptions as well as the very reasonable price put me over the top to order one.

    Greg, Your Nordstrand Custom is breathtaking! :D I always wondered who that one belonged to?

    On the "Nordy" side of the house, you're Number 6! Sweet looking Natural Ash. Love it.

    Vic and Tony. ...Love you guys, but you need to own a Nordy to get your numbers. Scream away, wake the dogs. I understand. I have another Nordy in queue, but it's way behind the batch yours are in. But It won't be long before both your Nordy's are done if memory serves?

    Here's the list for now:

    1 - Adrian Garcia
    2 - Roscoe5 (Gary Roberts) TB name to be changed (hehe)
    3 - Kevin Lindsay
    4 - Margus Alviste
    5 - Tom Bowlus
    6 - Drgregn
    30 - BEADG

    thanks, bro... Carey makes some sweet instruments! I'm pretty much down to Nordstrands and Skjolds in my stable now after going through a LOT of basses. :eek:

    Thats great Mike. But the big question is: Do you have them in your possession yet? I'm really looking forward to your reviews. (and I'd love to see them too! Especially your Oly White since that's what I ordered too) :hyper:
