I had a NR II (georges white 68 ). It was a sexy beast but I couldn't play the thing - it was pretty unwieldy - like a 2x4 with a body that weighed nothing.

LMFAO That is a pretty apt description of NR Thunderbirds! I felt the same way when I bought my first one in '77,but the sound was like nothing else, been my main bass ever since. Now a nice ergonomic bass just feels weird !

I wonder if that bass has been "modded"? KeBo would know....
