How’s the neck on that NS bass? I never played upright, so when I had the opportunity to try an NS, it felt like a tree trunk to me!

Hey, RockyNot!

I hadn’t played upright since 1970, so it took a bit of playing before my hands told me that the NS feels EXACTLY like a classical upright. Odd thing about them is that they are asymmetrical, both along the axis and across the neck. I suspect the fingerboard taper is as well. But, it feels SO RIGHT! One difference is that this has a truss rod, where I don’t believe a double bass does. Yes, the NS neck is much thicker than that of a bass guitar, but it is shallower, and the action much lighter, than that of a double bass.

I adore the thing in a way that I haven’t loved an instrument since buying my “forever” acoustic from Dean Markley in 1972. (I still have it, of course.)

I will relearn how to post photos here so I can share images. It’s quite lovely!

Richard

Good to see you getting really back into the swing of things Richard,

If the bass is anything like this it sure is a beaut.

I reacall as well when Pat Marr visited you, you unpacked a Country Gentleman guitar, it seemed such a nice guitar as well.

are you planning to film the unboxing and post it to the group? Enquiring minds always want to know (who to envy)

ML: That’s the one, except fretless and gloss. I wanted satin, but it wasn’t offered when I placed the order. That’s okay; it will match my Yairi acoustic guitar!

Pat: I don’t have a way to make a video—wanna come down and help? cool

Waiting for an update on the new Behringer Model D synth. It has begun shipping, but there is a looooong list of preorders ahead of me.

I'd love to, but I think my wayfarin' days are about over. If NCDOT knew how bad my eyes are, they'd probably revoke my driving license.
