What is your instrument of choice? 
My instrument of choice is a Fender Jazz Bass with Nordstrand Big J-Blades
I love how insanely clear and balanced they are. I put them in a bass I had been struggling with for years. Now it's my main instrument. 

I've been using Nordstrand for about 6 months I guess and have known about the company for a while. Always admired the innovative quality of Nordstrand. 

Confirmed tour dates for 2019 with more to follow:
