So tomorrow I'm ordering a NS CR5M
I've looked at reviews and have heard all positive comments, with the odd "It sounds just like a fretless BG"

so my question is, while bowing will the rosin residue affect the EMG pickups any? or ruin the finish in any ways?

Is that the upright lookin' one?

And I wouldn't see why it'd affect the EMGs, but if you're sloppy it might mess w/ the finish I'd imagine.
haha

Rosin just gets your fingers kind of nasty when you switch back to plucking... Wont affect the pickups even if you get some on them.

Allright thanks, thats all i needed to know

haha, I'm not a newb when it comes to Upright bass (I've been playing it for 5 years) just didn't know how the rosin would effect electronics

and if you're wondering why i went for the NS, i'm ****in tired of lugging around giant accoustic basses when for cheaper then a new accoustic i can just get a nice portable upright

Ive got an ancient 4/4 that is practically unmovable. I understand your dilemma.

I love NS, i decided on this one because I tried the 4 string version (Pizing, not arco) and fell in love with it, so i ordered up the 5 string

this will pwn everything
