    This bass is in excellent condition, it has been played and gig'ed, but lovingly cared for. I can't find any photographable scratches or dings, but there is some light play wear.

    This was a custom order, the specs are as follows:
    Body: Will Lee - Flame maple, swamp ash
    Finish: Caramel burst
    Fingerboard: Birdseye maple, vintage tint
    Radius: 9", nut 1.45"
    Pickups: single coil, w/Will Lee pre-amp
    Bridge spacing: 19mm
    Weight: 7.9lbs

    Price is $3500 plus shipping, I am pretty firm on this as a new one is a good 6 months + wait and $1000 more. I'm not in a huge hurry to sell this, so please no low-ball offers.

    Very nice. The Birdseye maple board really makes it stand out. Did you remove the D-Tuner or was it ordered without one?

    It was ordered without one. I just don't use that tuning because I just go to the 5 string. Thx.

    Maybe an opportunity?
    I played a couple 6 hour gigs (overtime) a week back and was very happy I brought my sub 8lb Sadowsky to the job (so was my back and shoulders)......
    Beauty bump!

    I just wanted to mention, I am really sad to have to let this bass go - it is due to a personal issue, not anything to do with the bass at all. Once I get out of the woods, this is the first thing I am going to buy back. I will probably spec a new one exactly the same - it is a killer instrument. Very light and versatile. At every single gig, at some point someone will comment on my "killer tone".

    It must be very hard to have to let go of some great basses, as you've been doing, but sometimes, other things in life take precedence. Wishing you the best of luck on the sale and in your personal journey.

    So how does the 19mm bridge spacing works on a Sadowsky? It's just a different bridge that's installed or is also the neck a bit different in size at the highest frets?

    Just wondering ...
