Nordstrand Acinonyx Demo - Summer Gear Slam 2020
July 15, 2020
Noted pickup maker and luthier Carey Nordstrand's first import bass is inspired by a '60s Goya cult classic and comes in at a remarkably affordable price.
Acinonyx Short Scale Bass
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.
