New Gear: Nordstrand Audio introduces the V2 Acinonyx Short Scale Bass
Nordstrand Audio introduces the V2 Acinonyx Short Scale Bass…
The V2 Acinonyx bass features 3 classic style single coil alnico 5 pickups utilizing our innovative push-button pickup switching system. This system utilizes individual on/off switches for each pickup allowing any combination desired. The fourth switch is a series modifier which puts the middle pickup in series with either of the other pickups. Add in a .1mfd tone control(extra dark roll-off) and the available tones are thus rooted firmly in the massive fat punch of the OG Acinonyx. But the three single coil platform explodes the tonal palette with rich detailed open and soaring vintage character.
