    I'm a little over extended and my first New Year's resolution is selling off some gear I really couldn't afford during a recent G.A.S. attack.

    First item of the new year is my custom Sadowsky NYC P/S 5, the "S" being for soapbar in 70's jazz bridge position. It's complimented by a Norstrand built P pickup.

    Delivered in July 2013 the constructions is a chambered alder body and a one piece maple neck with a morado board. Nut width is 1.75" and string spacing at the bridge is 19mm. Electronics are the standard Sadowsky 9v preamp with VTC. Finish is Lake Placid blue. Condition is nearly perfect with 2 small scratches in the back of the neck behind the 11th fret. The protective plastic is still on. The weight is 8.4 lbs. Not a feather weight but light enough to be more than manageable.

    Comes with original hard shell plush case, tools, accessories and a new set of Sadowsky Blue Steel Bright nickel strings .40-.125T.

    Asking $3900 including CONUS shipping. All offers given full consideration.

    The thumbnails are from Sadowsky but I will post my own pics later in the week. I just want to get a jump on fulfilling my new year's resolution.

    Looks rockin'. Out of my range, but I'll bump for some 24 fret, P/J (ish?) goodness.

    How does the P/soap combo compare to the P/J? My main bass is a P/J and I am a fan of that configuration.

    My last Sadowsky was a s/s so I can't really say how it compares but the Sad soapbars are nice pups. Thanks for mentioning the 24 frets. Forgot to put that in my post.

    I just saw two new basses on the "In Stock" page of the Sadowsky website. Both are P/soapbar 5 strings and 21 frets. One is pearl black and the other olympic white. The main differences between these two and mine are the fingerboard wood and nut width. The new ones are Brazilian rosewood with 1 7/8" and mine is morado (also known as Caviuna, Bolivian Rosewood or Pau Ferro) 1 3/4". However, mine is also 24 frets.
    The basses are selling for $4,725 for the black and $4,875 for the white. I'm lowering the price of mine to $3,725, which is $1,000 cheaper than either of the new ones.
    I will ship internationally if the buyer pays all shipping, duties, taxes and fees. The new Sadowky's cannot be shipped out of the USA due the international restriction on Brazilian rosewood.

    Fantastic bass. Wish I had the cash. Its about impossible to find a used Sadowsky 5 with a 1.75" nut.

    Had a couple of nice trade offers and one decent cash offer. So this may not be around much longer.
