Installed a P/J set of Nordstrand pickups in my "green machine" FrankenFender last week and I gotta say Nordstrand pickups are everything as advertised. [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]

Thanks to John Wymore for the deal and fast delivery and to Gil for the setup advise for the install.

I agree. I recently bought my first "modern" bass in 20 years, a Sadowsky 24F Modern 5 with Nordstrand Big Singles in stock J positions. The bass and the pickups kick ass. I liked it so much that within 2 weeks I bought a 4 string version, same ash/maple/big single combo.
Very impressive basses/pickups.

I picked up a Valenti PJ5 in June with Nordstrand pickups, it was my first exposure to them......made me a very happy man!

I'm at the point where I have Nordies in most of my basses and I don't like the basses that don't have 'em.
