    I just picked this up in late September, but need to offset some unforeseen expenses. This bass is incredible in every way, from it's incredible burled maple top to its stunning Brazilian Rosewood board.

    After I received it, I sent it down to Nino for a fret polish and a setup and it came back singing. Speaking of singing, you can actually hear it on the Jimmy Fallon show when Randy Jackson played it for a jam of "Pants on the Ground"... http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xeklik_late-night-with-jimmy-fallon-randy_news#.UL5NoZPjmrA

    Here are the specs:

    Sadowsky NYC JJ5 #5062 (2009)

    * Ash Body
    * Gallery quality Buckeyed Burl Top
    * Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard
    * Single Coil Pickups
    * 8.0 pounds on my scale which means it's under 8 pounds.
    * Clear Guard
    * Accent Body Line
    * 1.75" Nut
    * Original Sadowsky Porta-bag case.

    I need to get $4,000 shipped in the US only.

    NO INTERNATIONAL SALES!! I cannot take a chance shipping this bass out of the country with the brazilian rosewood.

    Incredible bass- like many others, I wish I had the scratch.

    Quick question- why is there a drill bit in the tool holder on the rear of the headstock? Is this used like a "pin" or "fid" for the truss rod end at the neck heel? Thanks.

    LOL... yes, that's a drill bit. It didn't come with the usual rod to adjust the truss wheel, so I improvised.

    a little off topic, but where can you but that little thing to mount the tools to the back of the headstock?

    Rob,

    Didn't you sell a similar bass a few months back?

    OP, that is gorgeous in any case!

    Hi

    Not a similar bass, the exact bass! Best 5er I've owned. Neck is killer. Sold it to fund a vintage P bass which I'm sure will be for sale soon. I need therapy. Or maybe just more money. Lol. Don't snooze on this one people!
