Posting for the dot.
Mine is almost done.
Last update I got was a body blank in transition, but that's been some time ago now...
Man that chambered body looks real coo!!!! Let us know if you feel it sounds tonally different being chambered and all!
First page tradition to post the same exact picture of my Nordy.....
Had to post pics of my amazing VP5 again, and a clip. I've never been so pleased with an instrument! Literally perfect in every way... tone, fit and finish, weight (8 pounds), B string, even tone up and down the neck, playability, looks, etc., etc.
Here's a clip!
Here is the bass!
The figure on that maple is OFF the Freaking HOOK! What a COOL, COOL bass. I love the simple, understated elegance. Wow. Really happy for your Ken! That bass is perhaps the single bass on this forum that gives me Serious GAS. Play it in the best of health and the best of times! Born to Groove!
Thanks Gary! Are you up early or late!!!!?!?!?!?
Had a great series of gigs with this bass over the last 4 days or so. Monday night, there were actually three bassists on a long gig, with the other guys two being serious P guys (and WAY serious players).
They both loved the bass, and played it during their sets! It was fun to hear it out front (with the AE212/LMII rig). Killer fat, warm but articulate (huge issue to me with some P sounds out front).... every note was clear, and the bit of grind and growl of the nickel rounds came through nicely, even in a very busy mix (full band, three singers, tracks/DJ).
Yeah, I'm up crazy late. Had a weeknight gig tonight. Awesome to get praise from other P Bass players who are familiar with the virtues of the a P Bass. I love it when I get to hear my bass out in front , through my rig, in the hands of a skilled player. That's always illuminating.
I'm in. Here's my smokin' VJ5 Classic...
And this is just AWESOME.
Thanks! That neck is really something. These VP5's are the real deal!
Here's some Nordy shop questions:
1 - How many basses does the crew output on average a week?
2 - What's their batch size?
3 - What's the percentage of 4's versus 5's?
4 - How can we get a multiple bass discount? Say 50% or more...
Number 4 is funny!
To answer the rest of your questions, we make about 1.5 basses a week if everything flows smoothly. Batches are typically 4-6 instruments at a time. And, we probably make 1 four for every 5 fives.
As a matter of fact, checking my order database, since we started making Nordy's about 6 years ago we've made about 250 basses. Around 200 are fives, and around 50 are fours. Almost perfectly 1 out of 5.
I love your vP5 Ken. Congrats. One day I too will own one.
In the meantime, here's a photo of me playing my vJ5... Such a versatile instrument and a joy to play.
Wow, I'm in fairly exclusive company since I've owned two VJ4's (and 4 VJ5's)
Update in the mail today:
mine would be the bound r/w neck with dots, 2nd from the top.
Oooh, that's purdy!
Now are those clay dots? Because we all know they have the best tone.
