• FS: Nordstrand NJ6 6-String


    Up for sale is a very rare six string made by Carey Nordstrand (NJ6 Deluxe). As you may know, these are no longer produced given Carey’s enormously successful Nordy line of 4- and 5-strings.

    Not only aren’t these available anymore, but it’s one of less than 10 six strings he’s ever made!

    Specs are as follow:
    – Northern Ash body
    – Figured Myrtle top
    – Birdseye Maple fingerboard
    – Nordstrand Dual Coil pickups (wired passively, Vol-Blend-Tone)
    – 35″ Scale

    NOTE: There is a dent on the front arm rest (see pics). It’s in immaculate condition besides that.

    It was built with the idea of a Richard Bona vibe (hence the wood choice and passive DC pickups), and it delivers in spades! It has an awesome slap tone with the pickups centered, and VERY convincing P-bass tone out of the neck pickup. Also, as you can see from the additional photos I posted, there is plenty of room in the cavity to add a preamp if you so desire (but IMO these pickups don’t need it).
