I tried sending this as a PM but for some reason TalkBass
responds with a message saying your name "kai ski" was
not found, so here's the message I was trying to send:
Hi Kai -
Hey - I'm a recent convert to Sadowsky - picked up
a really nice Will Lee here on TB. Before that all I played for decades was Fender Jazz Basses.
I've got five really nicely setup Fender Jazz Basses any of which that I can trade + Ca$h if you have an interest.
I can email you pics if you would like to see them.
All of these are a couple ounces over 9lbs (2 or 3 at
most) and feel light to wear. I, too, am a stickler for
low weight, low action, and thinner fast necks. All of these are the lightest I've ever found.
Here's what I've got:
1. MIM Black Jazz with RW Board and White Pearl PG
2. Candy Apple Red American Special with Maple Board & Carbon Fiber in the neck, (2010 model),
EMGX pups, and 3 band EMG pre-amp, carbon fiber saddles, Antique White Pearl guard, chrome knurled knobs. (This was my top bass before the
Will Lee - It's a tone monster and a real beauty onstage)
3. Jazz Blacktop - White Chrome Pearl (holographic white pearl) with
Black pickguard, dual "P"-pups, RW board.
4. MIJ Aerodyne - All black - no guard, cream binding, PJ pups all original, blackened hardware, Strat jack receptacle.
5. MIM Fretless Jazz Deluxe (3 band pre-amp), Antique Vintage White (light yellow), Tort Guard, RW Board with lines (factory)
I have additional pickguards if you prefer plain white, or black, or tort, black pearl, parchment or mint.
All of these have been babied and set up beautifully for low action, some have a few very light scratches and a couple of dings, but nothing through the paint and
absolutely ZERO buckle rash (I use "scratch pads"
on all my instruments and they really work)
I'm a real stickler about babying my guitars and all of these have terrific necks and are in great shape with little or no fret wear.
I play with very low action and a very light touch with D'Addario Chromes on most of them (smooth). If you'd like details or pics of any of them let me know and send me an email address.
Maybe we can come to a mutually beneficial deal on the Sadowsky. I'd love to have a second one and I really like yours.
Send me a PM with an email address so we can communicate privately.
Let me know.
