Ahhh, my apologies for assuming you are located inside the US. I love this bass. It's the perfect match for my Sadowsky J: natural satin alder, Indian rosewood, tortoise pick guard, single-coil p-ups. I've been mulling over the decision to order either a Sadowsky P bass or a Lull TBird. You may have just made that decision for me. I'll see what I can do to gather the rest of the funds. Otherwise, GLWTS.
