Describe your rig or instrument of choice: My main bass is an Ibanez ATK 815e (with custom Nordstrand electronics). I use Hartke amps and D'addario strings.
How did you discover Nordstrand/How long have you been using Nordstrand? I started seeing Nordstrand pickups in a lot of custom basses online and in magazines. About 4 years ago, my friend Pete who worked for Ibanez and then shortly for Nordstrand got me an NP5 for one of my basses.... I was sold ever since.
