Already a great sounding instrument, I felt that the active pickups and preamp were limiting the natural mighty tone of the bass, so I contacted Nordstrand and asked them about custom pickups. These are what they refer to as their "raw" series, and are custom versions of their big singles. Think of them like a souped up modern j bass. Punch, power, and sustain. Tight lows and plenty of bite while still maintaining sweet highs. Pretty much one of the best sounding basses I've ever played. Dances circles around the old preamp and pickup. The bass is passive. The two knobs that function (large black) are corresponding volume knobs (cts pots). If you turn down one of the knobs all the way the volume goes off. But you can blend any amount in between you want and there are sweet spots all over. The pickups were a bit of a tight fit, so I did have to shave a bit away in order to fit them in. They are a little trouble to move up and down as a result, but I think they're in just about the perfect position anyway. If you look very close you can see the etching. It is pictured below. Comes with a hard case, an extra set of Kalium strings, and I'll even throw in a fret wrap because I'm just a nice guy. $700 shipped in the lower 48 US. I am selling this to help fund a modular synth so hit me up. I'd like it gone pronto.
