    I bought this bass a year ago an have really enjoyed it but it's time to move it on to another TB'er.

    It's in really good condition. Killer bass with a great B- string, very even, super resonant. The Nordstrand Big Split bridge pickup sounds huge and blends great with the Nordstrand P-pickup. Weighs 9.5 pounds and is a 2010 model.

    Price includes CONUS shipping in OHSC and is $50 less than I paid. No trades please!

    Here is a short audio clip of me playing this bass on a gig. I have DR Black Beauty strings on the E,A,D,G and a plain D'Addario nickel B string.

    Sounds great and what a fun song to play...great job!! Just curious, I can't tell just by looking at the video but were you using both pickups on this sample? I'm assuming the configuration is V,V ,T and pickup selector? Still very interested and trying to figure out the numbers to get this. Thanks

    I liked to favor the neck pick up and just dial in a little bit of bridge to tighten up the sound is needed.

    And you are correct about the electronics – volume, volume, tone, pick up selector

    Thanks! They definitely have a good thing going on. I get to sub with them a couple times a year and it's always a great jam.

    Right now I have it set at about 18 mm. You can bump it up to 19 if you want.
