Lefty NS Design NXT5 Double Bass - Black Matt Satin

I have to move a few basses to pay off a new incoming computer. First off is my NS Designs NXT5 string. I LOVE this bass but rarely have the time to play it. This model is one of the last with “REAL” ebony fingerboard build in 2011 and it is produced in the Czech Republic. I purchased directly from NS Designs A.R. rep last August 2017. It was a B Stock with a few blems and rare lefty. Equipped with NS Contemporary Bass Strings by D'Addario. The player dots are proper left handed orientation as also are the controls location. As you might know these are very hard to get and especially in a 5 string model. It’s got a few very minor dings but nothing on the neck or obstructing the fingerboard. You can get the action super low on these but I have it setup killer and easy to play with plenty of mwahhhhhh. You can even hear these acoustically without bothering the neighbors. I have never used a bow on this but heard they rule with bows.

Sporting a full double bass scale length, the NXTa Double Bass features a solid maple body and neck with a graduated ebony fingerboard for a rich, full tone that rings true for every note. Asymmetrical fingerboard relief facilitates an even 'growl' from the higher strings and a clear, powerful lower register. The adjustable bridge and truss rod allow for low, fast action, or for higher string settings that encourage the traditional acoustic player to 'dig in' with gusto.

Includes a self-supporting tripod stand with full adjustments for height and angle plus a nylon padded gig bag with stand compartment, bow compartment, charger and accessory pocket, handle and adjustable shoulder strap. With a loaded weight of 11.2kg (25lbs) including stand, the NXT Double Bass fits in the overhead luggage compartment of most commercial aircraft.

Stock photo for now until I can take some real pics.
