This is a true, one of a kind, custom piece. This Nordy was originally designed by the late Adrian Garcia and Carey Nordstrand. Adrian Garcia had the vision for the body shape and Carey Nordstrand made it happen. In 2014, the bass was sent to Carey and he basically rebuilt the entire thing. Carey Nostrand said that this bass is pretty much priceless because Adrian Garcia has passed away and he's not going to build another one like this. In fact he stopped taking orders for his custom instruments due to the fact that he has got too many orders all the way to next year and has not yet to fulfill them. But if he has to build another to spec like this, it would be $6500+
