Used And Vintage Basses

We just scored a great short-scale bass that's hard to come by on the used market - the ultra unique and cool Nordstrand Audio Acinonyx.  This one is in excellent condition, setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop, and ready to go.

Lovingly nicknamed the "Cat Bass” in the workshop, the Acinonyx is an insanely cool, somewhat weird, and deceptively menacing instrument. This bass has all of the playability and phat tone you would expect from a short scale, plus the added fun of the tone control switches. Tone choices are available with a push of a button.  Go “All In” by punching all of the buttons at once, which puts the pickups in series mode resulting in a a loud, thick, and punchy tone. The 1 over 3 headstock may seem unusual, but it provides straight string pull while honoring the original aesthetic of the Goya Panther.

We consider this the best short-scale bass in this price range out there, period.  We've never had a used one in here and expect to go fast.  If you're in the market for an Acinonyx or just need an amazing short-scale bass, you've scored!
